People play in a recreation area surrounded by empty lots of destroyed buildings, in New Orleans, Thursday, Aug. 25, 2011. The Lower 9th Ward, the New Orleans neighborhood hit the hardest six years ago when Hurricane Katrina slammed into the Gulf Coast, is a sad place where the grasses grow taller than people and street after street is scarred by empty decaying houses, the lives that once played out inside their walls hardly imaginable now.
