The Live Oaks of Mississippi
The live oaks along the Mississippi Gulf Coast are making a strong comeback after Hurricane Katrina. The one pictured above is in D'Iberville. The Spanish moss is starting to grow back on the limbs.
MSNBC is the only United States media that I'm aware of that is doing monthly updates on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and its struggle to rebuild after Hurricane Katrina. The latest installment from the Rising From the Ruin highlights the rebound of our beautiful oaks.
As they come back, we comeback. As they struggle to survive in trying times, we struggle in trying times. As they rebound, so do we.
