Back from Mississippi

I just came back from the Mississippi coast covering Katrina for People magazine. The folks of Mississippi received a hit like nowhere else, worse in many respects than New Orleans.
The destruction was horrible, worse than anything I've ever witnessed. But the those who remained showed a resilience that transcends normal human capability. Seeing them, talking to them gives me hope they'll dig their way out.

I was also struck by the wetlands. Those areas lacking man-made structures appeared to have sustained very little damage, and looked almost normal.
