Sharon and I are thankful that we (with unbelievably generous donations of furniture from friends and neighbors) were able to provide a home for her parents. However, the plight of St. Bernard Parish remains dire. Travelers entering the parish on the Paris Road are greeted by this crucifix, presumably salvaged from a ruined church, propped up against garbage dumpsters in the median of the highway. "Keep the Faith" and "We Will Rebuild" are spray-painted on the dumpsters. Christian or not, it's a powerfully poignant display.
