My Hurricane Story

The Positive Stories Must Get Out

(p.30) My Hurricane Story
Second Line Rescue

Robert LeBlanc

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter presents an account by Robert LeBlanc, who along with a friend was involved in the rescue effort in New Orleans. He says that the media’s completely false portrayals of the situation have caused good people to die and lose family members. Further, human beings with any sense of compassion would agree that the travesty going on in New Orleans must end; people’s lives need to be saved and families need to be put back together. Robert also describes seven people who stood out during the rescue effort and whose stories deserve to be told.
