Eighteen-year-old Jabbor Gibson jumped aboard the bus as it sat abandoned on a street in New Orleans and took control. "I just took the bus and drove all the way here...seven hours straight,' Gibson admitted. "I hadn't ever drove a bus." The teen packed it full of complete strangers and drove to Houston. He beat thousands of evacuees slated to arrive there. "It's better than being in New Orleans," said fellow passenger Albert McClaud, "we want to be somewhere where we're safe."Check out wonderful pictures here.

Thanks for that.ReplyDelete
It's nice to see the strength that different people have shown through all of this. I really appreciated the link to the story about the couple who went on with getting married.ReplyDelete
Many Thanks for that Jonathan, it's good to hear some better news than what we keep hearing here in the UK, and the dreadful photos.ReplyDelete
Also glad to hear that you are safe and well.
