More than forty years ago, I walked into Darnell Drug Store on the corner of Madison and Eddy Streets in South Bend, Indiana. It was a visit that had no real appeal, rather a moment to take a walk and check out the newest magazines and maybe an ice cream cone.

Farajii Muhammad covers the ten year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, considering not just the last ten years but also how Katrina will impact the next generation.

Owens then talks to someone who is helping parents create a wealthy legacy by teaching their children wealthy habits.
