Rachel Maddow: Katrina Recovery 'Is Not Over,' It's Everyone's Problem (VIDEO)

Rachel Maddow had a strong message for America Thursday night from New Orleans: Katrina is your problem, too.

Appearing live from Algiers Point to help commemorate the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Maddow delivered a "we're all in this together"-style message.

"On this anniversary, there will be a lot of reporting over the next few days about this city's recovery from the flooding that followed Hurricane Katrina," Maddow said. "Call it a recovery or call it survival, it's not over. And this isn't just New Orleans. This is America. And if we do not feel like we are all in this together, we better have a damn good excuse for that."
