"The Olympics are cool I guess and the election is a mess, but this is real. This is happening. I say happening because our lives in south Louisiana have been completely turned upside down. Lives (human and animal) have been lost. And others have lost their "lives" in the way of literally having nothing to go back to...no home, no vehicle, no job, no furniture, clothes, photos, all those little things you spend your life collecting that spark joy for you. Those of us who didn't lose our homes and vehicles have countless friends and relatives who did... Friends who were rescued by boats and helicopters. Our jobs, our businesses, our schools, our stores and shops, our roads and interstates, our animal shelters and hospitals, our favorite little hang out spots... I mean the list goes on and on. We are all deeply affected by this and will be for quite some time." - Leslie Emden
