You can’t control the outcome of anything 100%.
But what you can control 100% is to have heart. And dedication. And loyalty. And that sums up New Orleans people to a “t.”
Four and a half years ago, their city was nearly obliterated by the biggest engineering failure in American history. Scorned by the ignorant and bigoted, they were blamed for their own misfortune.
Media pundits and Congressmen alike had the gall to suggest the city be bulldozed. Government promises of help didn’t come when they were needed and all this time later, few have been fulfilled.
But New Orleans people came back and amidst frightening, gut-churning wreckage rebuilt their homes and neighborhoods and businesses one nail at a time.
You can’t always control the outcome of things, but you can control what you do.
As long as you’re alive, there is always hope.
Go Saints! Go New Orleans!
And God bless all the brave people in this world who fight to the end against all odds.
