I am so far very happy with how local and the national government has responded to the latest hurricane Gustav. Now all we do is wait and see what happens. I hope that no one is hurt, but also know these storms can be very powerful. Yesterday I had someone ask me a question. Do I think they should rebuild New Orleans if it is hit this time? Well that’s very hard to me to answer as I have never been there. They asked me because I know a little about architecture and so on.
Here is what I told her. It’s a personal decision for the people who live in that city. Here it is 3 years later and we have another major threat. I guess if you are okay with constantly worrying about your home then rebuild, but if your tired already of working hard and seeing it destroyed or worrying that it’s going to be then maybe it’s time to go somewhere else. New Orleans has a great historical significant to this country and I would hate to see it totally abandoned, but if we can save lives by keeping it a smaller city, maybe that’s a good thing. Again it really is up to the people who live there as to what they want to do, it is their lives, not ours.
