Hurricane Katrina “Cry Out to Jesus”

The images were taken first hand as we responded to Hurricane Katrina. Third Day’s “Cry Out to Jesus” was the only song fitting to use.

My dear friend Rachelle Hitt Bilbo created this piece and shared a disk with me in 2005. I watched it once, then put it and the memories away.

It is a beautiful testimony to the compassion of law enforcement officers as we drove buses, gave water, comforted the old and young and helped bring a slice of peace to those suffering in the aftermath.

  1. Chief – Thanks for sharing this. Thank you and to all of our LPSO who helped out in the dark days after Katrina….I sat helplessly at my dark home in the days after, glued to my radio trying to learn what was happening to my region and to my wife’s family and friends in Gulfport. Somehow, I have this empty feeling that my “best” was not good enough during those days. However, I know the officers of my parish, picked up my “slack” and helped as many as you could. Thank you!

  2. I’m really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it’s
    rare to see a great blog like this one today.
