Oprah received another e-mail from a Hurricane Katrina survivor named Reginald Carter. He invited her to visit his new hometown of Trinidad, Colorado—a tiny town that’s proven it has a great big heart.

In his e-mail, Reginald wrote of how he and his family moved to Trinidad from their ravaged Louisiana home. "We moved to this town in early December and I must say we have been blessed. I would consider this town as a hero because this town has taken us in as a native Trinidad family. Many people have called just to make sure that we are okay. Some would stop by just to drop off food and clothing without even asking for anything. Many times I find myself crying because we have been through so much. I would like to let it be known to America that there are still some loving people here in this country."
