It was Herb Carver’s first time being the victim of a major catastrophic event and the irony of the situation was not lost to him. At the end of August 2005, Carver, along with many others living along the Gulf Coast of the United States had his life changed forever by Hurricane Katrina.
The storm, one of the fiercest hurricanes to make U.S. landfall in recent history, reformed the landscape of many lives. For Carver, the devastation and turmoil would inspire a journey with mindfulness culminating in inner peace and profound self-awareness.

When I graduated from Loyola three years ago, I had plenty of people to thank: professors, advisors, friends and close family — the usual. There was one unlikely person who actually wasn’t there during my school days at all but deserved as much thanks as anyone: my cousin, McKinley “Mac” Phipps Jr., a well-known New Orleans rapper who has been incarcerated since I was 10, and I realized I needed to write him and tell him how much of a motivational force he had become in my life.
Mac is currently serving a 30-year sentence for manslaughter, a crime for which he maintains his innocence. But now, amid serious questions about the testimony that convicted him under former St. Tammany Parish District Attorney Walter Reed, Mac’s legal team is actively working to have him released much sooner than that, according to a recent report from The Advocate’s Sara Pagones.
