New Orleans Saints receiver Devery Henderson remembers a moment during the team's spectacular Super Bowl celebration in the CBD when General Manager Mickey Loomis turned to him on their parade float and said, "Boy, a few years ago, you could have never imagined we'd be in this position.'"

Brett Duke/The Times-Picayune
Receiver Devery Henderson said of the New Orleans Saints' plight after Hurricane Katrina: 'I mean, what we went through is nothing compared to what some of the people here in the community went through.'
It was a sentiment that only a handful of players could have truly appreciated on that day.

As much fun as everybody was having as those floats made their way through a sea of hundreds of thousands of fans in the heart of the vibrant city of New Orleans, Henderson was one of the few who truly understood just how far the journey had been to get there.
Henderson is one of only three players remaining on the Saints' roster from this day five years ago -- when Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans and eventually turned both the city and the football team into shambles.
He, defensive end Will Smith and right tackle Jon Stinchcomb vividly recall the stunned feeling they had in those first few days, when the team was in California watching the destruction from their hotel rooms.
They won't soon forget the misery of that 2005 season -- practicing on high school fields and in parking lots in San Antonio, playing home games in three different stadiums, stumbling to a 3-13 record, and all the while realizing that their complaints were paltry compared to the plight of so many others back home.

You have to remember never forget. Never let it happen again. Don't ever forget your past.
