A Year Of Katrina: We Can’t Move On

“A piece of America was cut out and was decimated” this time last year. “I think it’s unconscionable that any of us can move on from it so quickly.”

That’s what CNN anchor Anderson Cooper says. In this Hollywood Reporter piece about the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, he recalls “something a local doctor told him a couple days after the storm hit.”

“He said to me, ‘Shame on you and shame on me (speaking of himself) if we just move on and forget what we’ve seen, forget what’s happened here.’ That’s stayed in my mind. Personally, I feel I made a commitment to try to get answers and continue to focus and not just move on and forget it. It’s so easy in cable news to move on to the next thing, and shame on any of us if we let that happen.”
