This is hard to take, be ready. Sorry there is no clicky but it would not take for some reason

All of those who have stereotypical views of others based on sex, or race, or whatever, need to watch this powerful video. They need to see the nobility, selflessness, and devotion of this woman. Want a hero? You need look no further than this woman.

I have been told that this is the Sister of the Neville Brothers.
I have no proof.

I couldn't get the thing to load, so went looking for other stories about her. Here's a LINK to one, with the opening paragraphs, which comfirm her relationship to the Nevilles.:

(September 07, 2005) -- Every time you think you've heard it all about the horrors of New Orleans in the past week, something like Charmaine Neville's experience comes around the bend, or the blog, and smacks you over the head like a club. It's a story of dead babies in the water, alligators eating people, heroism (she commandeered a bus to save dozens) and despair (she was raped).

Yes, she is a singer and one of the famous Nevilles. Her father, Charles Neville, performs with uncles Aaron, Art and Cyril in the Neville Brothers band. The Boston Globe has declared that there are "simply no limits to her skills," and The New York Times said she "electrifies audiences." As a frequent visitor to New Orleans, and a JazzFest attendee, I know the Nevilles' work well. But that connection matters little when you consider her story.

The video sounds powerful but WAFB demands Windows Media Player to see it. A bad idea. If some one could point to a downloadable copy, I would appreciate it.

don't bother with Windows Media Player...get Media Player Classic, a free open-source player that is even better.

Harry Connick, Jr. told some of her story on the Larry King Show the night he was on there, early in the week.

Someone should sit George Bush down for an hour and force him to watch that and other similarly harrowing stories - then see if he still says he was happy with the Federal response!

I can not imagine what this woman has gone through. Anyone who can watch and not have tears in there eyes by the end need to rethink their view on life.

She should be used as an example to all.

Jesus! The stories coming out of this are getting more and more horrific. It's starting to amaze me that anybody survived at all.

Let's hope the networks go for a bt of class and we don't see a made-for-TV movie on this thing by Christmas.

Its ironic that at the bottom of this screen is an ad for Aaron Neville.

I wish there was some follow up to see how she is holding up and to whats happend.
