25. I am not putting words in your mouth.
I am objecting to your down playing the damage to the area of town that I live in. You originally said it was the least impacted area, which is false - blantantly false.

Just because structures are seen does not mean that they are habitable and does not mean the area didn't get the storm surge and the winds that Pass Christian and the Bay received. Folks I know where on their houses in the Cities of Biloxi, the reason the City was not totally wiped out is because it is a much larger city than the Pass, it had more areas inland and out of the reach of the storm's waters.

Please don't down play any area and do not tell me how the area of town I live in has been affected. I have been affected as much as anyone in the Pass and so have my neighbors. Again, come live here and see what is real and what is simply your understanding of what is.

My information relative to Dauphin Island comes from people that lived there. Funny thing about us survivors, we may be in a resturant in a Mobile trying to be normal for a change and we can spot another survivor accross the room, just by the look in their eyes.

You don't live here so please don't profess to be the only one that knows what occurred during Katrina and what is happening now. This is not a competition, it is what it is. THE ENTIRE MS GULF COAST HAS BEEN DEVASTATED.

intheflow knows what it is like, she has been a volunteer working her in sections of the area that neither you or I have seen.

If you want to know what it is really like, if you want to be able to tell all about the reality, then come volunteer to help those that were not as fortunate as your parents. The ones that lost it all thanks to Katrina, whether it was washed out into the gulf or just spread throughout the surrounding neighborhoods. The lose is as real for me as it is for anyone in the Pass and I believe my neighbors and many, many people in east Biloxi will tell you the same thing.
