On the Floodwall: Drawers of memories

Below is the YouTube video of the news segment featuring Jana Napoli, creator of the “Floodwall.”

When she returned to New Orleans, Napoli said what she and others were struck most by was the profound silence: Their home was literally desolate.

She found abandoned furniture put out on the side of the road, wanting and waiting to be thrown away. She immediately thought to “save” the drawers.

Her garage became a place for them to dry. The wall is now a place where they tell their story.

Watch the video and visit the Web site.

It’s a very cool way to honor and remember those affected by the natural disaster.
