George Hebert, shrimper, “I moved into my house a month ago, bought new furniture, and now I have 5 feet of water in my home. We are renters, it will be hard for us to get any money. The clothes I am wearing now, those are borrowed. I am sleeping on a pool table. What do I do now? Where do I go? I don’t feel entitled to nothing, I want to work. How can I help myself? That’s the thing that gets to you the most, you don’t have your independence. It messes up your mind. Last night, I sat on that porch and cried like a baby. I worked so hard. I feel like I am no longer a man.”
