The storm pounded the walls.
The waters swallowed the Big Easy.
The rains pierced flesh and the winds howled.
The world watched the devastating horror.
Death and dying.
Corpses covered in sheets, lying in the streets.
The innocent looting to survive.
Stealing and violence from desperate souls.
The sun beating down with blistering heat.
This is hell on earth.
Cries, screams, tears and pleas for salvation.
Their leaders had forsaken them.
Only God can save them and their dying nation.
This is the beginning of the end.
Her fury was the calm before the storm.
