I've cried a lot for New Orleans today, for her people - one of which I used to be. I cried for Mississippi; I cried for the animals and those people that had to abandon their pets. I cried a lot.

But New Orleans, there's something that hits me especially hard about my beloved city going through such horrors.

I hope you had a chance to meet her before all of this. Yes, she was dirty and trashy and sleazy - and a lot of the time parts of her reeked of piss, sweat and puke. But even then, she stood proud and tall and beautiful. She had her seedy, sexy sides. But she was also elegant, glamorous, unique and very special. She was dark and mysterious - fun and wild, but a true Southern lady all the way. She stood up for what she believed in, and lived that message out loud - as did everyone who loved her and resided within her. She stood for so much. In a sea of tight-assed, conservative, Bible-beaters - New Orleans was a shrine of originality, acceptance and revelry. If she taught you anything, it was to let go, let loose - love and enjoy. At least, that's the message I got from my favorite city.

She'll rise again. Maybe not exactly the same, but matured - seasoned and ready to share a whole new other set of lessons; perhaps that life is fleeting and everything you love and own could disappear in a second - so just enjoy it while you have it. Don't worry about it, don't nitpick about it - just enjoy it. Because it isn't forever.
