Memorial Hospital in New Orleans weathered Hurican Katrina in 2005 - after the storm 45 bodies were recovered from the hospital. Of the 45 patients who passed away, some died from a lethal injection of Morphine. Five Days at Memorial is a detailed retelling of what happened during the storm, why those 45 souls passed away and what the investigation found. Memorial Hospital, like much of New Orleans, was not prepared for the storm and as a result of poor planning and disaster response the people at Memorial went through hell. 🌊 Only eight pages into this book I was overwhelmed with trepidation for the people who sought shelter at Memorial Hospital during hurican Katrina. Reading about their harrowing experience I close to tears. As I read I felt the fear of the patients, the desperation of the doctors and nurses as the power went out in the hospital, and the overall panic surrounding Katrina oozes through the pages. 🌊 Sheri Fink's story telling prowess is incredible. I was continually floored by the quality of the writing, the content, the stories, and the care and humanity she afforded each person featured in the book. Patrients, medical professional, and investigators alike were depicted with understanding and empthy, but also with unflitnching honesty. The brutality of what happened to the patients at Memorial, the unfairness the disaster, the terror of being abandoned and the infuriating truth that people were failed so completely is hard to read about, but certianly worth while. Fink deftly combines fact and feeling to deliver a book that is an unbiased, truthful and understanding. 🌊 The medical professionals at Memorial were and are heros, they were tasked with caring for the most vulnerable in the worst of conditions. 🌊 A weighty read that I highly recommend - go read this now. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”- β€œIt is hard for any of us to know how we would act under such terrible pressure.

Cheers to our childhood heroes! πŸ₯‚ Celebrating that moment when you write to one of your favorite authors from childhood and they write you a wonderful note back! πŸ’– Growing up in rural Virginia, my Mom checked Stephen Cosgrove’s books out from the library and read them over and over to me. My favorite was Leo the Lop. πŸ‡ Even as a tiny child I felt I could relate to Leo as I often felt different than the people around me and wanted to be "normal." Of course, now I'm grateful that I'm not "normal" by most people's standards because that's what makes me feel unique, happy, and fulfilled. πŸ§œπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ I was serendipitously reacquainted with his work at a gift store recently. I purchased Squeakers and was even happier to find that the book was autographed. It brought back a lot of memories for me. πŸ’— I wrote to him sharing how his work continues to have an impact on me and he wrote me a lovely encouraging note back. 🌈 I hope to meet him in person one day and give him a big hug on behalf of my childhood self. 😊 Check out his books and you’ll fall in love with his charming characters and positive messages! 🐿 . . #stephencosgrove #leothelop #squeakers #childhoodhero #childhoodheroes #author #mermaid #sheri #sherifink #mermaidvibes #read #reading #childrensbook #books #ilovebooks #childhoodreading #summerreading #readabook #serendipitybooks #authorsofinstagram #authirsofig #childrensbooks #serendipitypress #serendipity #grateful #childrensauthor #wecouldbeheroes
