Lower 9th Ward

On our way out of New Orleans on Sunday, we took a sobering detour through the Lower 9th Ward.. the area of New Orleans hit the hardest by Hurricane Katrina, most of which was completely wiped out when the levees broke. Many of the neighborhoods have not even begun to be restored and all that is left is cement slabs where houses once stood and families once resided. Brad Pitt has founded "Make It Right" to aide in the restoration of the unique spirit of the Lower 9th, which symbolizes the soul of New Orleans. One of the Global Green homes is almost finished (pictured above). http://www.makeitrightnola.org/
