Need Electricity to Rebuild - Fall 2005

This past week I went back to my house in New Orleans East and to my surprise, there was a trailer-house on the lawn next door. This was a very refreshing sight to see because it is the first person that I’ve seen on my block that actually shows some sign of coming back. Even though my family does not plan on moving back to our old location, it is nice to see that some people are putting some effort back into our old neighborhood, but most of the other people on our block, do not look like they will not be moving back. The only setback to their trailer house is that there is a sign left on the house saying that they will need electricity back in the area before they can get started.
