WireTap Magazine - New Orleans, One Year Later

One of the things we are planning on doing on this trip is to drive through parts of region to show volunteers how much work is still needed.

WireTap Magazine - New Orleans, One Year Later:
"I want as many people to come visit here as possible,' a Lower Ninth Ward resident told me as we walked past the infamous breached levees and destroyed homes of his neighborhood. 'The national media has forgotten us, the politicians in D.C. have forgotten us. I support anything to get the word out.'

Among the people of New Orleans, this sentiment is common -- the country has moved on, and if people would just come here and see, maybe they'll bring attention and consciousness."
