CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - One Charlotte family can really appreciate watching neighbors helping neighbors as the footage from Superstorm Sandy hits the airwaves.
The Johnson's, dad Lucius and mom Martine, evacuated from New Orleans with their two kids just before Hurricane Katrina hit.
That was 7 years ago.
Since then, the couple has made Charlotte home. They opened up a restaurant called "Bite Your Tongue" and recently expanded to SouthEnd.
"It really takes time..perseverance to get back on your feet and you just can't stop..you've got to keep moving," Martine Johnson said. "You find out what great people there are in the various communities and in your city and surrounding areas."
Stories of heroes have emerged from mother nature's latest disaster but as we heard during days following Katrina, there are also the stories about frustrated folks needing help sooner.
"After the event has happened and now the now what...it tends to bring out the creativeness, the hard working the determination..it just takes you to another level as an individual," Lucius Johnson said.
The Johnsons say that is exactly what happened to them. They say they never knew a storm could make them grow - as an individual, as a couple and as a family.
"I think that my family really represents hope..going through Katrina..packing enough clothes for 2, 3 days," Martine said. "It is real when I tell you we came here with nothing," Lucius added. "We had hope for something greater, bigger than our present state."
"I know it sounds like a cliche but there is hope after such a storm," Martine said.
