When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, Randy Adams and his family evacuated to a hotel in Memphis, TN. Although they were safe, their home wasn’t. At first, Randy was filled with uncertainty about where to start rebuilding. But, in time, he and his community did rebuild their homes and their lives. Ten years after the hurricane, Randy and his neighbors feel deeply grateful for everything they have—especially each other.
