Good News: Friends Forever
When New Orleans was overcome from Hurricane Katrina in 2005, 3-year-old LaShay Brown was rescued with her family from the deadly floodwaters by Air Force Master Sgt. Mike Maroney. For over 10 years, Maroney kept the photo snapped of the two that day and eventually launched a social media campaign to find that little girl who’d touched his heart. His #FindKatrinaGirl campaign hit its mark as Maroney eventually found LaShay, now a teenager. They forged a lasting friendship and still talk on the phone once a week.
