The worst natural disaster in Louisiana since Katrina has brought us together like never before. Whether it be movie studios that became shelters to the “Cajun Navy“, Louisianians have been helping their neighbors through this crisis.
Here’s a Facebook post from an Ascension Parish resident that shows just how this flood has erased most of what has divided this state in the past.
You can go all over the state and see people helping their fellow neighbors. Storm relief shelters and churches have been inundated with supplies and money from all over the state.
People have even taken to cooking jambalaya for storm victims and rescuers.
Louisianians are also using Facebook to spread news about shelters, where supplies can be had, where people need rescue, and what roads are passable.
One of the good things about this flood is that Louisiana may just be pulling together as one state now. The flood waters and social media have erased the racial and regional differences that have held us back. We have a chance to begin anew as a state. Let’s not screw it up this time.
