Katrina Memorial- Biloxi, MS

After Katrina, the media focus was all about New Orleans and nothing about the Mississippi Gulf Coast. I was very sadden because this was the place where I grew up. This was the place where everything started for me. The beautiful sandy beaches, the antebellum homes on the beach front, the shrimping boats that dock at the bay,and the great big Magnolia tree that I use to sit under as a child has now all been destroyed in just one day.

The Katrina Memorial located within Biloxi was built to commemorate all victims who had parish in the storm. I am very grateful for ABC Extreme Makeover for choosing Biloxi, Mississippi to air their show for Hurricane Katrina. My childhood memories of the Mississippi Gulf Coast may be gone but never forgotten.
