Where were YOU when Hurricane Katrina slammed into New Orleans in late August 2005?   Were you one of the thousands of individuals who had to leave their homes, their friends, and all their "stuff" behind as they as they left town to avoid the storm's aftermath?   This session will create a safe place for teens, those of you who were just kids at the time of this immense upheaval, to gather together to share experiences and memories.  What did you lose and what did you learn?  I will present the character Gertie, the feisty 9-year-old Jewish heroine of the novel When the Hurricane Cameto discuss some Jewish and psychological truths about developing resilience in the face of difficult times.   For those of you who were here in New Orleans, and for those of you who moved here afterward, this will be a chance to look back and look ahead.
