Broussard's speech on Meet the Press

Transcript by fangirlsays:

Jefferson Parish President Aaron Broussard as he was interviewed by Tim Russert on today's Meet the Press:

"...The guy who runs this building I’m in, Emergency Management, he’s responsible for everything. His mother was trapped in
St. Bernard nursing home and every day she called him and said, “Are you coming, son? Is somebody coming?” and he said, “Yeah, Mama, somebody’s coming to get you.” Somebody’s coming to get you on Tuesday. Somebody’s coming to get you on Wednesday. Somebody’s coming to get you on Thursday. Somebody’s coming to get you on Friday… and she drowned Friday night. She drowned Friday night! [Sobbing] Nobody’s coming to get us. Nobody’s coming to get us…”

Feeling: indescribable indescribable

It's Tuesday morning and I just watched Harry Connick Jr. on the Today show. They filmed him walking through New Orleans, finding his parent's home. He called them on the phone asking if they wanted him to get anything out of the home. Then one of his friends with him said that there was an elderly man over on a porch that needed help. He went over and took off his shirt to put it on the man, then carried him to his boat and got him out of there. He had tears in his eyes and so did I.

It's terrible.
