President Clinton, Soledad O'Brien, New Orleans music highlight Katrina Anniversary 10
 

soledadTwo upcoming major events being held August 29, 2015, honoring and remembering Hurricane Katrina anniversary:

 Mayor Landrieu and residents of the City of New Orleans will take part in an early prayer service at the HurricaneKatrina Memorial in memory of the victims of HurricaneKatrina. The Mayor will lay wreaths at the site, where nearly 100 unclaimed or unidentified victims of HurricaneKatrina are interred, on the 10th anniversary of the storm. The HurricaneKatrina Memorial, a project of the New OrleansKatrina Memorial Corporation, was built in 2008 to provide a permanent memorial honoring those who lost their lives in the devastating hurricane and to lay to rest the unclaimed or unidentified victims of HurricaneKatrina.


 On Saturday August 29th, President Bill Clinton, will join New Orleans residents, community leaders, Mayor Mitch Landrieu, and advocates who over the last 10 years helped the City recover from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, in a commemoration of the city’s resilience. This signature event will be held on the official anniversary of Katrina’s landfall, at the Smoothie King Center. The program will be hosted by Soledad O’Brien, whose coverage of Hurricane Katrina for CNN won her, and CNN, a George Foster Peabody award. Doors open at 4pm and show starts at 5pm.  

 

The event will feature remarks from President Clinton, Mayor Landrieu, a Congressional delegation, and individual neighborhood leaders, nonprofit managers and business owners who have showcased their resilience in the last 10 years.  Additionally, faith leaders of multiple religious denominations and languages will pray for the city to continue to unify, heal and move forward. 

Musical and cultural performances will include nine-time Grammy nominee R&B and jazz recording artist Ledisi; Grammy-winning Rebirth Brass Band; John Bouttee; Tonya Boyd Cannon, Stephanie Jordan, and Chief Monk Boudreaux and the Wild Magnolias.

Katrina 10 Commemoration: The Power of Community is open to all city residents, but seating is limited. Tickets are free and will be provided on a first-come, first-serve basis via email through Ticketmaster or via in-person pick up at City libraries and community-based organizations. Volunteers from the Katrina 10: City-Wide Day of Service will automatically receive tickets and access to exclusive seating. Earlier this week, due to overwhelming demand, additional tickets were made available.

quin hillyer health 5Have the conservative Freedom Caucus and advocacy organizations such as Freedom Works and Heritage Action "screwed the American people"?

That's the feeling expressed by at least one long-time conservative Republican, who, as millions of others were outraged by the destruction of the Obamacare "repeal" and replacement, on Friday.

comey sitThe GOP will likely claim that the bogus “ Assisted suicide counseling” will still be covered since Obamacare remains the law of the land. That’s good news for GOP legislators who planned on voting “yes” on its repeal. The rich, also, should be happy the old law remains because they have wounds that need tending after the mega tax breaks for them that were inserted in Trumpcare went the way of leeching. The failure to repeal, of course, is the Democrats fault. Trump said so, but he has reason to be happy, too.
