A very difficult read:
Difficult because it’s non-fiction and about a Syrian-American family’s life before, during and after Katrina.
I didn’t pay attention to the news when that storm happened in September 2005…
There are descriptions of New Orleans during that time that can only be referred to as military occupations of a disaster zone. There are incredible wastes of human and financial resources during the aftermath in order to ‘keep peace.’
Wow. Going to need to take a short break from reading after this one. I need to let it settle in and absorb.
I am going to devour a graphic reader.
