More Senseless Violence

New Orleans has always been a violent city. Its so frustrating and one wonders what it will take for the tide to turn. Recent murders have evoked an outcry from the community. There have been marches but the violence has not receded. It leave one wondering where the problem lies and what is required to act on it. I wonder if the problem lies within so many social institutions that there is no one simple solution. Rather, it will require a massive overhaul of not only justice institutions but of our very social fabric.

I think we all feel helpless, and in the mean time the violence continues unabated.

Thanks for stopping by New Orleans Daily Photo. Good luck on your blog. It may seem that progress is slow, but I saw stats the New Orleans gains about 1 percent of its population per month. Had that happened since 2000, the population would be way over 2 million. Rebuilding takes time -- there are no short cuts.
