The Drive Home

Driving from New Orleans to Atlanta was perhaps the most important piece for myself and my companions. We traveled past the now familiar neighborhoods of destruction and despair reflecting on what we had experienced and what we had learned. At times we sat in silence reliving moments of yesterday and the days before. It was a completely surreal experience. We moved from one state to the next quietly saying goodbye to a world that we had come to know, respect, and fear.

It was a trip back in time to the beginning of the week. When we began the trip we often talked about what we carried with us – not just our extraordinary amount of luggage but also our knowledge and our past experiences, which were the only references we had to relate to what was to come.

Now as we return home, never did we expect to carry so much with us. We would like to thank all of the families and loved ones for their patience and understanding as we re-enter our daily lives.
