Anyone see the Patriots All Access segment with Jarvis Green in New Orleans? It was quite moving.
Didn't see that spot. Everything I've seen and read about J Green indicated he is a centered. good guy.
I didn't see it ... but I have seen Jarvis in person and interviews ... what you see is what he is .... a very caring, tireless person who has dedicated his life to helping others ... too bad the NFL is always highlighting the idiots of the league....The Jarvis Greens should be the role models.
It was a very moving segment, showing Jarvis beaming with pride at the new football stadium in NO, and then moved to tears after visiting his grandmother's old neighborhood, which was still in ruin. He walked among houses that were all but deserted, and picked up a photo off the ground that I think he said was of his grandmother. He was thankful that he was in a position to help his family, but wondered how others could both rebuild and support themselves.
It seems the land grabbers will have a say in this. As we know, many of these people qwned a home because it was passed down to theme. Paying the taxes a major burden for some of these poor people.
Even with an insurance check, should they have had insurance, will not help them pay taxes on a new house with increased taxes due to the land grabbing and real estate price surge.
Will N.O. look the same 10-20 years from now???
He said he voted for Bush NEM.
