Scenes from New Orleans

OUR JOURNEY TO NEW ORLEANS:6 days in November – by Jordanne & Anais

Open the thesaurus and find the word “desolation.” All those synonyms and more could describe what we saw last week when we spent a busy six days in New Orleans.

    Hi Anais,your account of the 6 days is one of the most sobering I have ever read.To know that you took it upon yourselves to do all that you did in such conditions makes me proud to know you all through PTF pages,more importantly it is a ‘wake up call’ that many ignore,though some few are aware of through the PTF portal.’We Will Survive’may be a sign that becomes all too familiar in coming times ahead.My thoughts are with you all,blessings and love,

    I’ve been quiet in commenting here of late, but just wanted to stop and say thank you for posting this story. Your photos say a thousand and more words that we never would get from the TV/radio news… As Claire said above, “bless you.”

  5. Liz says:

    Yes, bless you, and thank you for your work and for taking the time to write up your experience. We need to hear about this. Its so important. It will help me get into action.
