It’s been more than seven months since Hurricane Katrina slammed into New Orleans. Since then, nothing has come easy for those who were abandoned in the Big Easy. I’ve heard the stories and viewed art exhibitions (and here). I've also seen the photos and videos (here and here). In a few hours, I will walk the streets of the Crescent City and see for myself the plight of those who are struggling to put their lives back together (and here) .
