East Texas Resident Volunteers in New Orleans

by Jessica Cervantez

Richard Brookshire enjoys being back in East Texas. For one hundred days he volunteered in New Orleans.

Brookshire said, "It was just unreal, what we saw. My buddy and I volunteered our time. We thought we were going to answer telephones and questions, but we ended up going out and helping people."

As he goes through the picture, he can show his son what it was like.

Brookshire made his journey to New Orleans September 14th and made it back home in time for Christmas. He says his pictures do not even compare to what he actually saw with his own eyes.

He says that he thinks it will take several years to get New Orleans back to the way it was, if that is even possible.
