- The Washington Times - Saturday, August 1, 2009

The physical damage of Hurricane Katrina is well known. The government has spent billions of dollars to reconstruct New Orleans and other cities in the Gulf region in response to the devastating storm of 2005. But wreckage still lingers in human minds.

Thousands of Americans remain seriously disabled — crushed in spirit and unable to function in the world — because of the trauma of that time. Suicides have also been on the rise.

The Washington Times spent weeks compiling the full story of the toll that Katrina still wreaks on New Orleans. Starting Monday, a series of articles — accompanied by heart-rending photos and videos — will be published. Read them here on washingtontimes.com and in The Washington Times.
