Heard a lot of people saying they will never go back.

A young black man, not too well spoken, was being interviewed in Houston because so many had pointed him out as being the one who rescued them.
Seems that after getting his own family out of a flooded and damaged house and to safety, this young man left the safety of dry ground and went back into his neighborhood to help others out.
Eventually finding someone with an accesable boat, the two of them kept going back and pulling people out of houses till everyone in the neighborhood was safe. This is the kind of thing that heroic people lose their lives over, yet this young man seemed unaffected by the praise.
He said that while he has always lived in New Orleans, he will never go back. Said he never wants to chance living through such devastation. As of the time of the interview, this man had several job offers lined up in Houston doing whatever kind of work he could get so he can move out of the Astrodome.
