We can all learn from Cholene Espinoza.
With her partner, a close friend, and a truck packed with supplies, Espinoza drives into the Deep South with misgivings and selfdoubt.
Espinoza finds her own struggles overwhelmed and transformed by the stories of Katrinas survivors.
Espinoza details the seemingly insurmountable red tape, systemic barriers, and inequities in disaster assistance for people who have no means to complain or demand better. Common stereotypes about race, religion, poverty, government assistance, single parenthood even our notions of charityare challenged when seen Through the Eye of the Storm. This is a story of loss and recovery, of the ravages of disaster and the healing power of community.

The first is Cholene Espinoza, who is impressive on so many levels, I'm not even sure how to write about her. She is a United Airlines pilot, she was the second woman to fly a U-2 spy plane, she was an embedded war journalist in Iraq, and she is now an author, having just written a book about her experience offering relief in post-Katrina Mississippi. She is a total inspiration to me as a person, and while I haven't read her book yet (it will be released April 1), I am sure it will inspire many. The book is called Through the Eye of the Storm, and if you check out the publisher's web page , you can see Cholene's author photo, which I shot. (It's the one where she's crossing her arms in a black turtleneck.)
