One of the events that probably impacted me the most was going to the lower ninth ward. People don’t really understand how lucky they are, especially me. I take my life and all the things in it for granted. Seeing all the destroyed houses and spaces where houses used to stand really made me think. Life is precious and you should cherish every moment of it. There was one family who put a table in their yard that they had wrote on right after Katrina hit. They wrote how they lost two loved ones and they also wrote a letter to the president saying how they feel unloved and how they wish their country would love them as much as they loved their country. It was really hard to see this because you never really understand how bad it was until you actually see it. That was probably one of the most impacting events on the trip to me.
