THE ABANDONED 9TH WARD IN NEW ORLEANS

What hope is there when you are trying to rebuild...

And coming up on 2 years after the storm your
community looks like this?



When your kids have to walk down streets like this daily?

When there is no hardware store to get supplies?

When there is no beauty salon ...

Where there is no Family Dollar just to "get a few things"...

No corner store...


There's no place to get your Rx's...


There's no place to take the kids for a "treat"....

There is no place to hang out and talk...


There is only sufferation.

Dear reader, this is how the people in the 9th Ward of New Orleans are living everyday. How long do you think you could take living in a community devestated such as this where most of the stores, schools, and opportunities for hope and growth are "CLOSED"?


A day, a week, a few months - not at all?




Imagine the suffering of those who live this reality everyday...


Right now as you read this.


Prayers and blessings to all who suffer.
