This Olde Parade - Disappointment

At some point in the near future, the people on the Gulf Coast will no longer be able to flippantly play the "Katrina Card." At what point will we cross the line that delineates what we "cannot fix" versus what we "are too lazy to fix."

We're two and a half years out. I would like to think we have had the time and the resources to fix Gulfport's City Hall. However, we haven't. It sits there, wounded and weeping. A continual disappointment. Reminding us all of the worst period of our lives.

I want the wounds healed. The damage repaired. Normalcy.

I want to escape the memories of Katrina.
