Brad Pitt Aims to Keep Focus on Katrina Recovery
"We knew we couldn't bring back the families and friends that were lost, bring back the heirlooms, the pictures ... But maybe, in the process of rebuilding, we could build something smarter, and create a better way of life for those people who live here."
- Brad Pitt, actor/activist
New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - Calling Hurricane Katrina a "man-made disaster," actor Brad Pitt said Tuesday he remains committed to helping the city recover from the storm.
Pitt, 43, said the redevelopment project could help encourage people whose homes were destroyed in the storm to return and rebuild in a more environmentally conscious fashion.
