Andrew Dewey’s story has three acts, and each plays an important role in his journey from tragedy to triumph.
Act 1: Hurricane Katrina–twelve hours that changed Andrew’s life
On August 15, 2005, Andrew moved his wife and their four children to LaPlace, Louisiana, a few miles west of New Orleans. A promotion to regional supervisor of franchises for a national company allowed Andrew to purchase a large house close to Lake Pontchartrain.
Ten days later, Katrina struck, and Andrew’s life took a sharp turn toward trouble.
