DESIRE LA, ABUNDANCE TREASURE ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST CHURCH
The community of DESIRE for all intents and purposes abandoned to their suffering. The children live in cruel poverty and their school is worse than the Guantanamo bay facility. They are schooled in a prison like complex with no plants, no flowers which resembles solitary confinement. I am ashamed of the inhumanity of the wealthy of New Orleanians who hold glitzy benefits to rehab the marble mausoleums of their dead and ignore the suffering and the lack of homes of the living. Just think if the wealthy of New Orleans really understood the concept of Noblesse Oblige - they would wear their old ball gowns, not buy new jewels, not have their hair done for the balls, donate all the money that their krewes raise, save on tanning beds and beads and give away all that they would have spent on their Mardi Gras festivities for the suffering of those less fortunate and privileged than themselves in their own city.
