Katrina could have a silver lining

WASHINGTON

Laura Bush, former inner-city teacher, says Hurricane Katrina could have a silver lining if it forces the nation to respond "in a different way" to difficult poverty and racial problems.

"A large percentage of our population probably doesn't realize what inner cities are really like and has looked away from that," Bush told The Associated Press in an interview Tuesday.

"Because of the devastation on the coast, there will be a neighborhood and a housing discussion that'll be possible that really was not possible before," she said. "And then the employment piece of it is also very, very important. ... If a large number of people can come out with skills that they didn't have before, that will be one silver lining."

I guess the impact of that picture after that article has left me rather speechless. There's not a thing I can add that hasn't already been said by that photo.

Yes, it is very fortunate that the thousands of people who lost their jobs, homes, and even family members in the hurricane will have the opportunity to learn new skills such as cleaning up massive amounts of garbage, tearing down water-damaged houses, and decontaminating their drinking water. Yes, definitely a bright silver lining.

Self-reflection is important during times of crisis.
