Katrina's Five Year Anniversary & Parenthood

This past week has been difficult. All the terrible memories have been stressful. I was lucky enough to be able attend President Obama's speech at Xavier University today. But all things considered, the main thing I worry about with all of the Katrina stuff is my children. Did Therese and I make the right decision in staying in New Orleans, or would we have been better parents by moving elsewhere. I encouraged my children to write about this today. Here is what they said, and I am very proud of both of them:


  1. Hi Mike,

    The Katrina Anniversary was also very difficult for me. I wonder if we made the right decision to not return. One of my daughters is graduating this year. I am very regretful that she isn't graduating with her Lusher family. Something that makes me very emtotional.


  2. It's hard to imagine our children graduating Lisa. With your situation, I think it's like the saying "you can never go home." The New Orleans you guys left doesn't exist anymore, for better and for worse. We miss you.
