But what happens now?

Bay St. Louis, Miss., is my hometown,” Gregory Favre writes from California, where he is a member of St. John Lutheran, Sacramento.

“It is the town where my foundations were built, where my dreams were born, where my faith was fused.

“It also is the town that looked Katrina in the eye and didn’t survive.

“But what happens now? The town … withstood the mighty blow of Camille in 1969. But this time she went to her knees and couldn’t rise.”
