Katrina …. Deja Blog, Deja Obama

August 30th, 2006 by Larry Smith

A new way of telling the Katrina anniversary story comes via Dr. Michael Hébert, a pediatric physician who’s launched The Katrina Blog Project. The doc’s conceit is to recount his actions from one year ago starting from August 26, 2005, and how that jibes with what he’s doing and thinking on that day one year later, creating something like an online Katrina re-enactment.

And now a message from Barack Obama, via MoveOn, who wants you to know that if you donate $20 to help Katrina relief efforts, you get the book It Takes a Nation is the story of Hurricane Housing, in which the senator’s forward is found:

It Takes a Nation is the story of Hurricane Housing, and I was honored to write the forward. This collection shows everyday heroes at work and reminds us that the strength of our nation is not our government, but our fellow Americans. It Takes a Nation is a story of hope.

Follow the link above to donate + get the book.
