Remembering Katrina

Biloxi lighthouse

I heard on the radio that people tend to get sentimental during the summer. My summer trip to Biloxi Mississippi was full of remembrances of Hurricane Katrina. With this being the 15th year since Katrina, there was an exhibit recalling the hurricane. I also saw wooden sculptures carved from oak trees that died during the hurricane.

The Biloxi Lighthouse has become an emblem for the city. The lighthouse has survived over 20 hurricanes, the Civil War and Civil Rights protests since it was built in 1848. It thrives on a busy 4 lane highway oblivious to the hustle and bustle around it.
