|I thought this was such a striking photograph that when I came across it recently, I decided to share it with you. It was taken September 4, 2005, after the levee failures flooded New Orleans. I found it in the FEMA photo archives. It's a cemetery in New Orleans, with tombs surrounded by flood waters. It reminded me of a story I heard about a hand-scribbled note found taped to the gate of St. Roch Cemetery just after the flood waters had receded. It read: "The dead slumber peacefully. They fear not. Neither do they cry."
