The real Katrina Kids

They aren't on the White House lawn: "Some kids _ like 6-year-old Michael Watts, Jasmine's next-door neighbor _ are taking matters into their own hands. As the storm approached, he did what his parents told him: Pack a single bag. Don't take more than a few day's worth of clothes. He returned to find his toys caked in mud. That's when he asked his parents for a suitcase, one with wheels and a handle. In it, he began storing every new toy he was given since the storm. Now, he doesn't let the suitcase out of his sight, lugging it behind him on errands, to the store, to restaurants and to sleep-overs. Inside are his treasures." Via First Draft.
