Editor’s Note: This is the second in a series of stories on Hurricane Katrina that hit Louisiana Aug. 29, 2005.
Even after a category 3 hurricane landed in South Louisiana that flooded 80 percent of the city and claimed 1,833 lives, local firemen did was asked of them. They would say they were just doing their duty.
Lincoln Parish Director of Homeland Security Kip Franklin, a former district fire chief, and Ruston Fire Department Public Education Officer Eric Brazzel were asked to join the efforts of rescuing citizens in New Orleans in the days following Hurricane Katrina.
Former Ruston resident Marilyn Sewell said if it had not been for her experience in North Louisiana and, more specifically at Louisiana Tech University, she never would have found the courage to “follow the thread” of life which lead her to becoming a renowned figure in the progressive Unitarian Universalist movement and the author of the book, “Raw Faith: Following the Thread” which delves further into her life lessons and spiritual awakenings, providing a “thread” that she hopes will lead readers closer to love, compassion and healing.
