"As this catastrophe unfolded, I watched like all of you and I felt helpless and I wanted to do something," Oprah says.

"My first stop was New Orleans. America, I can tell you this: Even if you've been watching the news and reading the headlines, you have no idea what went on here. It is a travesty that is still unfolding. Nothing I saw on television prepared me for what I experienced on the ground."
