FROM THIS EPISODE

In the towns Waveland and Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, the schools are closed, most families have fled, and the town itself has been almost entirely wiped out by Hurricane Katrina. Now residents are asking themselves: how do you bring a whole town back to life? Their answer was a particularly American one: a high school football game in donated uniforms, with National Guardsmen filling in as sideline officials, played to the drumbeat of just a single member of their marching band. This, and other stories about coming back to life, when all is lost. Photo thanks to John Fitzhugh and the Biloxi Sun Herald.
