On this anniversary, a variety of emotions surface. I choose to focus on one: gratitude. I'm extremely fortunate to have been able to move back home a year and nine months after the tragedy. I wasn't sure it would ever happen. I was excited to introduce Jean and reintroduce Zoe to New Orleans and raise them in my beloved city. Here is a photo taken on our front stoop in August 2007, a few months after moving back. Many thanks again to George Long for taking our portrait.
