NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA. Newlyweds Todd Ledet and Megan Bendig dance their way out of St. Louis Cathedral at Jackson Square in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Saturday, Aug. 15, 2015. Hurricane Katrina put roughly 80 percent of the New Orleans under water. Hundreds of people drowned inside their homes, their bodies floating in the muck. Hospitals and police were overwhelmed. The city emptied. Now, as people describe the city’s resurgence, they reach for metaphors that verge on the Biblical: a resurrection, an economic and cultural renaissance, a rebirth.
