Atlanta, GA

George: I been here since Katrina. This is where they evacuated me to after the hurricane. The apartment building collapsed and my parents drowned. I was rescued by the National Guard. Spent four days in the Superdome.

I had reconstructive surgery done on my foot. My foot ended up getting infected with gangrene. Today I’m still fighting the gangrene.

It’s been an interesting journey. I’ve met a lot of people and learned a lot of things.

BW: What’s Atlanta been like?

George: Atlanta’s a great city, man. Every city has it’s ups and downs, but for me and my healing process, Atlanta’s been a great city. I’ve been in and out of Grady and Emory hospitals having research done and tests done.

BW: Are you homeless now?

George: Well… momentarily I’m homeless, but things are getting better now. I’ve been doing paperwork for my disability, and things are coming around. I’m also going to receive nine years back pay.

BW: Have you had a place since you’ve been in Atlanta?

George:  Well, I’ve really stayed at the hospitals and in and out of the shelters.  

BW: What are your memories of New Orleans? A lot of good memories?

George: Yeah, I have a lot of good memories, but the one thing that’s gonna stick with me for a while is the inside of the Superdome. A lot of hurt and a lot of pain there, and I was part of it for a minute. That energy was serious…

BW: I bet it was. Like the hopelessness of prison almost. Even deeper because these were people who had lives a day or two before and lost everything. Do you feel like it was traumatic for you?

George: Yeah, because it’s still with me. If it wasn’t for God, I’d have probably taken it a different way, but having God, I know that it’s just a part of life.

BW: Are you hopeful about the future?

George: Yeah, the future is gonna be great. I can’t wait.

BW: What do you want to do?

George: I want to start a tour guide business specializing in historical tours of Atlanta for the kids. This city has a lot to  offer.

“Maknae line will go to the hairdresser with her tomorrow” Jimin said quickly.

Jimin walked grabbing Sanghee’s hand. Jungkook and Tae were trying to make her laugh. She was smiling at all the silly faces Tae and Jungkook were doing. “Do you think she will cry?” Jimin asked worried. He didn’t want to see the little girl crying. Tae’s smile disappeared. “I see The Return of Superman, normally little children cry”

“I just hope she doesn’t cry, I won’t know what to do” Jungkook said. They saw the hairdresser and Jungkook carried Sanghee on his arms.

Tae opened the door of the hairdresser, Jungkook and Jimin entered. Sanghee looked around, a little nervous not knowing where she was. She put her head on Jungkook’s neck and played with his collarbone.

“Welcome” A man said. Jungkook smiled at the man. “What do you want?” He asked smiling at the three boys and the little girl.

“We want to cut her hair” Jimin said. The man looked at the little girl. “It’s the first time for her in a hairdresser. We don’t really know what do with her hair” Jimin said kissing Sanghee on the cheek.

“How old is she?” The man asked. “She is 2 years old” Jimin answered. Jungkook left Sanghee on the floor, she hid behind Tae’s leg. “Her hair is too long and the weather is hot, so I will cut her hair over her shoulders and she will have bangs. She will be very cute” The man said.

Jungkook, Jimin and Tae smiled. They really wanted to see Sanghee with short hair and bangs.

“You can sit her here” The man said.

He put a cushion so Sanghee wasn’t too small. Jungkook grabbed her, sitting her on the chair. Sanghee was relaxed, they all were surprised. But it was at that time, when the man began to cut her hair, she began to cry and move. Maknae line swallowed hard, not knowing what to do.

Jimin hugged Sanghee, trying to relax her. She grabbed Jimin’s shirt with her little hands and sobbed. “Scary” She said. She was scared of the noise. Jimin kissed her forehead. “It’s okay baby”

But nothing helped and she cried. Tae tried to distract her with some toys that were next to her chair. Jungkook grabbed Sanghee, he sat on the chair where Sanghee was, sitting her on his lap. He started to sing ‘Butterfly’. Jimin and Tae singing too.

Sanghee’s mouth opened. She looked at the three singing. Sanghee was totally looking at three boys, the man cutting her hair. Cutting it very quickly, Sanghee completely submerged in the song.

“Here we go” The man said. Jungkook smiled when he saw how beautiful she was. Jimin and Tae smiled too, thinking how much luck they had to have a little girl.

The four walked toward their apartment. “Sanghee-yah!” Jungkook called her attention. Sanghee, that was walking grabbing Tae’s, looked up. She turned her head to the side, waiting for Jungkook to speak. “What is my name?” He asked smiling widely.

Sanghee giggled and stopped walking. She pointed at Jungkook. “Kookie” She said in a cute way. Jungkook’s heart started beating hard and he blushed. Jimin laughed and punched him on the shoulder. “And what’s mine?” Jimin asked.

“Chimchim!” She said clapping. Jimin smiled lovingly. She pointed at Taehyung. “Tae” She said. They all smiled and entered on their apartment.

Sanghee ran to Hoseok, hugging him. “Ohh, cute~” He said looking at her and kissing her nose.

“Sanghee” Tae said. “What are their names?”

“He is Monnie, Jin, Hopie and Suga” She smiled pointing at all of them.

Namjoon sat on the floor, putting Sanghee on his lap. “We have buy you a lot of things” Namjoon smiled. Sanghee smiled too, nodding her head. “I’m curious. Who is your favorite Oppa” Namjoon asked. “Run to him and kiss him”

Sanghee got up from Namjoon’s lap. She run towards Yoongi, grabbing his face with her little hands and pecking his lips. Yoongi’s eyes were wide open and Sanghee blushed. “Hahahaha” Jimin’s giggles sounded really hard. Sanghee smiled micheviously and ran toward Jimin, pecking him on the lips too.

Jimin blushed too. Sanghee laughed and she started to give pecks to all of them.
