I met Hillary in an Atlanta neighborhood and talked to her about what it was like after hurricane Katrina, in New Orleans.

Hillary: They ignored us for seven days. We were hungry. That’s why people was stealing from the stores. The police were doing more stealing than we could ever do. If you walked down the streets during Katrina time, they had the right to shoot you because of curfew. There were people who were stranded on their roofs, watching alligators eating people right in front of your face. 

BW: Have you been in Atlanta since Katrina?

Hillary: Yes.

BW: How did you get here?

Hillary: We had to “borrow” cars to get here *laugh*. We took good care of them. Thank God, he made a way for us to get out.  

BW: What was your biggest resentment about the whole thing?

Hillary: Being left behind.
