This was a wicked hot day. Tre, Ya’sier and Sherod (who joined us for the first time) did a great job working as a team and I think everyone had a lot of fun. It was sad seeing the signs of destruction and death in the 19th Ward, but I think part of the healing process and even prevention is making people aware of what happened. “Focus on the local” is a tacit mantra of the program and that’s what we did today more than any trip so far.
