St. Bernards Parish, New Orleans Louisiana
The tour of New Orleans went well, as well as can be expected. Derrick said to me the pictures on tv of what you are seeing, are not doing this area justice. I was thinking he was going to say it is not as bad as it appears. But no he said it is 100 times worse than what we are seeing on tv. Derrick and Donovan went to St. Bernarnds Parish (a parish is like our counties) the first day it was opened up for the home owners and people to go back in, Here is a pic of Derrick that was on the front page of the Times Picayune Paper this Sunday. There are other pics on the site as well http://www.nola.com/katrinaphotos/tp/ ( just copy and paste the link) then click on the See Galeries the click Times-Picayune more pics then Taking Survey of Life in NO September 17th group of pics. Sorry that is so long to follow. He said everyone has lost so much, they are very happy to know that people from across the country are worried and are praying for them, not only that but people are raising money to help them.
I have to run for now - but I will write more later.
