Tuesday in New Orleans

Being in New Orleans so far working with the United Saints organization has been an incredible experience. Today was our second day of volunteer work. I spent my time gutting the inside of a home which had been badly burned. During the house fire the home owner unfortunately lost her daughter and her dog. As we were cleaning out the home we would occasionally find remnants of the life the family had shared together inside this house that we were helping to destroy. We were demolishing so that what remained could be rebuilt and recreate the life it once housed. These little remainders of their life before the fire really helped to visualize the good that we were creating through our work.
