President Bush speaks in Bay St. Louis on Katrina’s 2 year anniversary

On Hurricane Katrina’s second anniversary President George W. Bush came to our city of Bay St. Louis. President Bush spoke on the rebuilding efforts along the gulf coast. The President mentioned the new Bay Bridge in his speech calling it “And it's a beautiful-looking bridge. And it's working.” and the new railroad bridge that have been built since the time of the storm. “Remember when we first choppered over here, Governor, the bridge was -- there might have been a few pylons showing. You could see the planks underwater of that bridge.” –President G. W. Bush “There's still obstacles, and there's still work to be done. But there's been a lot of progress made, and that's what people have got to understand. And I have come to this site, what we call Ground Zero -- this is where the worst of the worst of the storm hit -- to be able to show the American people that through their generosity, this infrastructure has been rebuilt.” –President G. W. Bush “It's that community spirit that has been very impressive to me and Laura. It's that can-do attitude. It's the attitude that said, okay, a storm came; we understand it, we don't like it, but we're going to deal with it. That's the Mississippi spirit.” –President G. W. Bush The President also took the time to thank all of the volunteers and works that have brought this city back to life. We here at Lagniappe Presbyterian Church would like to do the same for all the volunteers that we have come down. THANK YOU!!! Because of you volunteers we are able to rebuild. We would also like to thank President Bush for coming down and visiting our city. You can read all of the President’s speech at Soli Deo Gloria; To God Alone Be The Glory President George W.
