Katrina Anniversary Site Is Launched For Louisiana, New Orleans, Gulf Coast
Written by 

KatrinaKatrina Anniversary Six.

Six years ago Monday, one of the worse natural disasters roared into the Gulf Coast.  For hundreds of miles, life would be never the same.

The world thought New Orleans had been spared except for major wind damage until word leaked out that water was gushing through the city due to broken levees caused by man’s own negligence.

 After that, it became obvious that New Orleans would never be the same.

In commemoration of events that led to a great national debate over whether New Orleans would be or could be rebuilt, and in memory of all of us throughout the world who shared a sense of horror and grief over an act of Mother Nature going mad, Bayoubuzz.com has launched KatrinaAnniversary.com to help serve as a guidepost in history helping all of us to both remember what occurred and to forget what hurts so painfully.

“We built this KatrinaAnniversary.Com community so that people could continue to participate in the discussion about the epochal event that is fading in our collective memories”, said Stephen Sabludowsky creator of the community site and publisher of Bayoubuzz.com.

In the community, visitors can join using their Facebook credentials or by a separate user name and password.  When there, visitors can discuss Katrina-related issues, click on the news stories, put up photos, videos, make friends, view event calendars and engage in many of the activities one would find on social networking sites.

Bayoubuzz has also created a Facebook and the site called Katrina Anniversary.

“We hope that people visit, take a look at many of the incredible videos on the KatrinaAnniversary.com community and simply engage”, said Sabludowsky.  “We see it as an online museum of sorts that we hope will serve the public this anniversary and for the years to come.  It was one of the most disruptive moments in the history of the region.  Everyone has Katrina memories.  Everyone has a Katrina-past”.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
