There is beauty in every situation, even if it is just a small glimpse. I dare you to see it…
This was only a small glimpse into Lake Charles although you can clearly see the damage that took place has created many challenges for the residents of Lake Charles. Many residents are still battling with insurance companies, trying to find housing, make the necessary repairs, and so much more.
I purposely chose to not show a single person in these series photos to symbolize how empty the city still feels. Many residents have lost some of their most valuable possessions and the city is still hurting just from the simple fact that so much has been destroyed. In addition, many residents and businesses have moved. The residents of Lake Charles are in deep need of help. There are still so many residents without basic shelters and necessities.
Despite the enormous sense of emptiness and sorrow in the city there has still been beauty in the process. People of all races, religions, and cultures came together as one to help each other. Lake Charles is making progress everyday and surely will be better than ever before.
Better days are coming.
