You’ll Never Know

You’ll never know what it feels like to miss home til you are away.

You’ll never know what it feels like to lose a family member while you are away from home and not be able to attend the services.

You’ll never know what it is like to have friends you miss when you are surrounded by strangers.

You’ll never know what it feels like to go out every night and see more than you could ever explain.

You’ll never know what it feels like to be part of a community until you’ve seen New Orleans.

You’ll never know the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina and how it broke down homes and families.

You’ll  never know what its like to rebuild your home from scratch and feel like its going to take forever.

Thats okay, you don’t have to.

This is my experience.

This is what I’ve seen, felt, and cherished deeply about being in a city such as New Orleans.

Don’t worry about me. I’m going to be okay.

Don’t worry about the people of New Orleans, they are going to make it.

Worry about the help.

Worry about the support.

Worry about what you can do to help.

Only then, will you know.
