New Orleans Ten Years After Hurricane Katrina is Reinvented

New Orleans is coming up on the 10 year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and the destruction that was wrought by the failure of the federal levee system.

What’s interesting, and it might lead you to believe that there are really no coincidences, is that the root word for Katrina means “cleansing.”

New Orleans Reinvented Ten Years After Hurricane Katrina

Now, of course, it’s tragic that people died and thousands lost their homes and livelihoods. But I think it’s always useful to consider, besides what was brought by the wrath of God, the opportunities that have been offered to make New Orleans a much better place, not only for its citizens but for business and education as well.

And like the Phoenix New Orleans has definitely risen. And I think a lot of it can be owed to not only the resilient people of region but also those thousands from around the country and the world who were willing to volunteer their time and efforts to help bring the city back.

I believe it’s come back in a big way. And this little video is a testament to that.

Since 2005 J.P. Morgan Chase has invested over $34 million in the city of New Orleans and in organizations like the New Orleans Business Alliance, Foundation for Louisiana and the New Orleans BioInnovation Center as well as other entrepreneurs and innovators.
