For 21, Wyashika McClebb never imagined her hometown would be so quiet. Having only seen one familiar face since Hurricane Katrina, Wyashika is concerned. She feels that a place once called home to many will never be that place again. “If we dont come back we will never be able to rebuild it if there’s no one here.” While each empty house on the devastated streets of her old neighborhood has its own price for repair, throughout these neighborhoods were also places of education and worship two key ingredients in making a community according to Wyashika. “If we get the houses rebuilt and the schools back open thats a whole community its not just one house.” For now it is one house that is Wyashikas primary concern along with a new addition in the form of her four month old son. They will both start over , and with very little. “I’m moving back into my home and all I have is my bedroom set.” Much more than many who couldnt get out Wyashika says, and while making the decision to move back she couldn’t help but wonder why her elected officials couldnt see what was so obvious to her. “We had school buses, RTA buses that were damaged that we could have used to see that they didnt have a plan hurt in a sense that so much could have been done.” With so much left undone her problems with downtown are for now on hold. Wyashika, will focus on the future and the time it will take to rebuild and she hopes more will take her lead.
