It's kind of shocking because sometimes things just pop in your head, like, oh this weekend, I have to go to my babysitting class and then I think, oh no I'm not. It's starting to sink in that I'm not going back for a while this time. I mean, the hurricane just changed everything.

Even though we are under a tragedy and don't exactly have much money at all, what we do have is each other. We have our family. We have food, water, shelter. People in New Orleans, they were dying because they didn't have any of those.

Usually we always leave and it's been like a game because we always just go back. This time, we couldn't go back.
