As New Orleans and the country remembers the third anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, listen again to the voices and frustrations of the survivors, as caught by our Lauren Johnston last year on her visit to New Orleans.

-Photos of the devastation of Hurricane Katrina are here

-Even the worst event brings out the goodness in people; here are photos of 23 celebrities who pitched in to help

And if you're out and about in the city Friday night, stop by 'The Calling', an event presented by the nonprofit NOLA Preservation Society.

There will be an art exhibit, musical performance from Jonathan Baptiste, and a buffet/open bar for the $25 donation fee. Proceeds are going toward preservations efforts in New Orleans and other Gulf Coast areas that are still battling the impact of Katrina.
