Trivia

As a part of their documentary, the students interviewed such prominent figures as Dan Rather and Mayor Lyda Ann Thomas, individuals who have lost everything, citizens who resided in the government-provided "Tent City", top Galveston and Houston officials, numerous volunteer recovery workers, residents who rode out the storm the night of September 13th, and the heroic efforts they are making to rebuild our island.

Quotes

Larry Gregory: Essentially it was a mess and we had to clean it up. It was that simple, and I came to the realization there are really only two alternatives after the storm. You can quit or you can move forward and do the best you can and try to come back and that's kinda how we looked at it. Try to make every day a little bit better, try to make your big pile of mess a little smaller and that's how we got through the first few months because everything was very very primitive and very basic.
