After Hurricane Katrina, Waveland, Miss., was like nothing I had ever seen. It was complete devastation — piles of wood, twisted metal, and personal belongings scattered around most of the area. A reporter and I were following a group of aid workers from Lee County when we found Mark and DeNeice Guest, sifting through the remains of their neighborhood, trying to find what was left of their home. When Mark Guest found two of their glass-blown pieces in a neighbor's yard, fully intact, he was overjoyed. When he walked up to his wife and showed them to her, they immediately kissed, standing on what was left of their home. It was wonderful to see two people who had lost everything, rejoicing in such a small thing.
