It felt great to be back in New Orleans for CLINIC’s 2010 Annual Convening. The last time I was in the Big Easy was just weeks before Hurricane Katrina hit the city with its deadly force. Back then, my family had gathered in the city to celebrate my younger brother’s law school graduation. Victor, the youngest of four children, made us all immensely proud and grateful to our parents for their love and commitment to our education and formation.
