How Long Will It Take? Decades.

The damage is beyond description. But there are some bright spots.

From this:

NOLA 035

to this:


NOLA was a place of dramatic contrasts, beauty and alien weirdness. I spent 3 weeks down there with the Red Cross, working on an ERV crew and feeding the amazing people of the region. It's a war zone. You need to be there if you can. If you can't, do something else, something besides sending money. Every single one of us needs to step up and make a difference. If you can't go, the Red Cross could use you at your local chapter. The SPCA could use your help. Oxfam. Go. Surf. Check it out and do something. These are your brothers and sisters, your children and parents and grandparents, these people are your responsibility. You ARE your brother's keeper.
