There was no one around at the time. What caught my eye were the broken barbie dolls on the chair (not in these photo's), and as the door glass was broken, and as the outside of the house is collapsing, I thought the house was left as it was 2 years ago when Katrina hit they city, as are many of the homes I photograph for this blog.
Look closely at this photo and notice how things are neatly arranged and organized, the person who lives here, in my opinion still has their dignity intact and their is some hope. Look at the second photo with the waterfall picture. I am so moved by the outward signs of this occupants faith and strength. Look at the books and items on the shelf. I did not "see" any of this when I was photographing this morning. My mind could not even grasp at the time that a planetary brother or sister could live like this in this country. I comprehend that this level of poverty and suffering is rampant in other countries - but we are supposed to be the wealthiest country in the world! Billions of dollars were sent to the gulf coast to help.
I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians.
Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.
This quote is directed towards those who say that they are "with" Christ
even as their deeds belie their words.
Prayers for the suffering...
