HouseCat BS: Return to New Orleans (14) RE: BS: Return to New Orleans 15 Jun 07


Beautiful, Chanteyranger. NOLA has a special place in my heart. Being a few easy hours drive from my home, we visited there alot. I haven't been back since Katrina, but worked with several familes who evacuated here from Louisiana and Mississippi. My church "adopted" families and helped them with housing, furnishings, clothing and food, and aided them in getting established here. Even hearing firsthand from them about how devastating it was couldn't show us the reality of it all. The children especially wrung my heart. One little girl said, "I just want it to be like it was. I don't like my life anymore." No child should ever have to feel that way. God bless you and your friends in your work.
