My name is Dana Liebert. I lived in St.Bernard Parish, Louisiana for the past 35 years until 08-29-05 the day my life changed forever. That Sunday, the day before Katrina hit us, I was staying home I figured I would ride the storm out. I put everything up on my comp. desk thinking if I get water, it would never go 4 feet.
My mom came over that sunday morning and insisted I go stay by her house with her. She lived 10 blks up from me. My home was two blks from lake Bourne canal. Barely my potbelly pig was 180 lbs. I tied open his gate for he stays inside the shed but has a trap door that goes in and out. I figured if water comes in the shed he would at least get out. Gina my cat I left her inside the front bedroom and open the closet door.
I packed an overnight bag and took Tobias my dog with me and left with my mom to go around the corner. mom, dad & I stayed for katrina and thought we would ride it out. Little did I know that night My whole world would
fall apart and be gone in just a moment.
