It has been more than 3 years since Hurricane Katrina. I just got bad from a week's trip. I saw the good the bad and the ugly.

The United States of America has never been more ignorant or blind to their own in justice.

People are still living in FEMA trailors, neighbourhoods are still abandoned, people have abandoned their homes or have had them taken away. People are homeless and heartbroken. New Orleans, Louisiana still need a lot of help. Years and billions of dollars of help.

These spray paints on the walls are badges of honour and for some heartbreaking reminders:

North quadrant is the date the house was checked.

East quadrant is code for hazards.

South quandrant is for the number of bodies they found in the house. Sometimes you'll see the death count for house pets.

West is the unit/squad that did the search.
