A blog by the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration about justice and peace issues

It has been five years since Katrina hit New Orleans. What does the city look like now? Who has come home? What will the future be?

Below is a link to a Truthout article that serves as a “video essay.” It includes five different short videos that highlight different aspects of what has developed (or not developed) for the people of New Orleans.

But it also shows a hint of the future, if the response to Katrina becomes our norm as a country what will that mean for future survivors of natural disasters inside the United States and around the world?

Check out this video and the four others and let me know what you think…
