VIDEO: "I love this house" – Veteran and New Orleans Native Wallace Thurman Shares His Story

Posted on: December 8th, 2008 by Sarah Heffern 1 Comment

There is no argument more compelling for saving New Orleans' Mid-City neighborhood than the words of the residents themselves. Many are life-long New Orleanians who came back after Hurricane Katrina to rebuild their homes. In this video, Wallace Thurman, a veteran, talks about losing the place where he was born -- and still lives today.

Help us save Mr. Thurman's home -- and those of the other residents of lower Mid-City. Take action today!
