A multidisciplinary group of students, scholars and community groups will depart this Saturday morning to begin to work to make the invisible sights of the hurricane's reality visible and the unheard voices heard. We will be listening, working, worshipping and studying with poor people's organizations, community groups, hurricane relief efforts, churches, and - most importantly - those who have experienced and are largely still experiencing the realities of the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. This blog will be updated daily from this point forward with reflections, survivor stories, student experiences and textual reflections.
TEXT FOR REFLECTION
