Nearly seven months after Hurricane Katrina ravaged Louisiana, there are still many neighborhoods that have yet to receive assistance. For the past two days, John Edwards has been in St. Bernard Parish and sent us this dispatch.
“I’m here with nearly 700 college students who gave up a trip to the beach for their spring break to come down to Louisiana with me to help clean up some of the homes that were devastated by Katrina.
It would break your heart to see what we’ve seen. Block after block, each home is completely full of debris and it’s infuriating to know that these families haven’t been getting the help they need.”
