    • QUOTES (5)

      • Gloria Guy: Thank God for Brad Pitt because they is doing something that the President couldn't do; the high-office people couldn't do. 'Cause it looks like they forgot all about us and we was the hard-workin' people in New Orleans. And they should have been at our rescue. They wasn't there.

      • Brad Pitt: I really enjoy Mike (Holmes). I enjoy his indignation when things are done improperly or when people misuse the trust of others.

      • Brad Pitt: Listen -- they had most of Europe rebuilt after World War II by this time. If there was will, this would be addressed.
        Mike Holmes: To raise money to rebuild the Lower Ninth Ward, Brad started the "Make It Right Foundation".
        Brad Pitt: We set the final goal at 150 homes. That's what we've raised financing for and that's what we'll do.

      • Mike Holmes: (After walking through the devastated remains of Gloria's neighborhood) That is overwhelming. To walk down and visually see all this three years later. Why hasn't anything happened in all this time? I'll never understand this. What is it gonna take to get people together to make a difference? In New Orleans, Brad Pitt was asking that very same question.

      • Damon Bennett: (upon arriving in New Orleans almost three years after Katrina) Before I left, I had no expectations. I wanted to see what it was like for myself, and it's actually worse than I thought. It's unbelievable. It's not something that I was prepared for.
