Paul Garrett, 56, and his neighbor's dog, Rusty, whom he rescued during Hurricane Kartina, walk the streets of the 9th ward in New Orleans on their way home in 2005. "Everybody left," said Garrett, a former longshoreman. "I stayed." Garrett said he stayed to help the neighborhood's elderly and sick. "Everybody can't leave," he said.
