Keep Loving, Keep Fighting #6

by Hope Amico

Hope takes us in into and onto the desolate, hurricane ravaged city streets of New Orleans. This is what a recovering community looks like without the old faces. Neighbors come and neighbors go, roving packs of dogs and riding bikes down empty streets by the putrid odor of the rot. Friends come back or bond closer in a world peppered with nostalgia and well...hope. We follow along as the city empties. We follow along as the city survives. We follow along as our author navigates the difficulties of New Orleans rebuilding. Going away and coming back; home is never the same and memories lines every curve.
