Eyes of the Hurricane portraits. September 14, 2005. Keyon Ford,(cq), 26, of New Orleans. She is staying at the Lowry dorms. She is here with her 8-year old daughter, Cobey Anderson and her aunt, Barbara Johnson. Her daughter is attending school. She stayed through the hurricane, but her mom and her daughter left before it started. "The water just came in from the levee." She found herself in the water, getting shocked (she said) by leeches, "I just had marks all over my body." She had other problems, though, "I wasn't worried because I had to feed my family." She and 4 other people (who?) were in a boat, using mop and broom sticks as paddles, taking 5 hours to get to a friend's mother's house to get the woman her insulin, only to find out that it wasn't any good, because it wasn't refrigerated. After 7 days (where did she stay?), she was finally rescued by a National Guard in a helicopter and taken to Kenner Airport, and from there, taken by Frontier to Denver. She's grateful to Colorado. "Denver held us down. They held us in the palm of the hand, " she said. "They held us in the palm of their hand. I love them for that. They were really praying for me and for God to choose us to come here." (ELLEN JASKOL/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS) ***Keyon Ford (cq) phone: (504) 830-6132.
