We've seen activism in the streets, all around the country, this summer and and violence and a few cities and their Guess. It was a lot of talk about what this all may mean come November what was the sense that the march yesterday which was peaceful. Yes as something striking to me was the urgency that I heard from people around voting as I was actually walking around. There were volunteers seemed like at every corner actually registering people to vote and one, hundred, sixty to one person I met her name is Stephanie Lion and when the nineteen sixty three march happened, she was only eleven years old and her mom told her she was too young to go. So she couldn't go and felt like she had to be there and the other thing that she was very insistent about was how she planned to vote I think that mail and voting gives me some suspect. Some apprehension in doing. So but standing in line shows that I'm really going to support the voting process and I think that he's going to be clean, legal and straightforward, and the topic kept coming up We also talked with Kai Marshall who lives in Jacksonville about it. So soon as early voting for early voting opens in Florida, that's what I go I got on. Wait for the day I go month before. So the lines are lower smaller. And so I can get in and out but I still participated in the process. Of course, these activists were marching gathering not far from the White House. We're just this week president trump accepted the Republican nomination for president. Yeah and if you remember in that speech President Trump talked about gatherings like this. You described the people participating as agitators who he said wanted to destroy the American way of life. A lot of people who gathered heard that speech and had a lot of strong words for the president. Almost everyone I talked. You said that they plan to support Joe Biden. And Kamala Harris Democratic candidates though there were certainly different degrees of enthusiasm. Akina new bre is twenty four and I spoke to her about the Democratic presidential nominee and whether she thought that young people like herself would vote in November or whether a lack of enthusiasm for the ticket might keep them home. They understand what's going on and they understand that whether you. Love Biden or not you gotTa vote for him because we can't have former trump new Ross said that it did not matter whether Biden Harris where a perfect fit she said she was more worried about the future of the country and what it would look like if president trump does win another four years NPR's WanNa Summers. Thanks so much. Thank you and you can hear more of one is reporting on the NPR politics podcast. So be sure to download and subscribe. Much of southern Louisiana is still without power for those who stayed behind Thursday when Hurricane Laura made landfall, and for those who have returned sense cleanup is difficult and slow going trees and power lines down throughout. Much of Lake. Charles one of the cities that took the brunt of the storm, which one hundred, fifty, mph, Winds Arbor you haas of member station w. w. no spent today there and joins us now. Good. Morning Aubrey Good Morning. So tell us what you saw. Yeah so I started my reporting downtown and that's where a lot of the most visible damages storefronts blown apart to be everywhere and windows shattered buildings that just you know completely fell apart I saw this massive broadcast tower that just crumpled to the ground and when I talked to some residents who are around, you told me they've often looked to this tower in past storms and it's been a comfort when it's still standing and they didn't have that this time around really let. Them know just how strong Laura was power still out across the city and the water isn't working either elected officials have said it might be weeks before residents get those services back and because there's no electricity traffic lights aren't working some roads are completely impassable either because they're covered with debris or floodwater and while were a lot of cars on the road you know relief workers and military vehicles. They weren't a lot of residents back just yet because the conditions are so difficult. Now I understand you were able to spend some time though with some people who were returning and trying to figure out if they're homes were still there and what damage had incurred and what what the damage was what did they find? Yeah. So I did I found a family, the pilots They told me that they evacuated to Arkansas as the storm was coming in and they returned to Lake Charles not exactly knowing what they would find when they got to their house they said everything looked pretty good from. The front, they could see that there was a branch on the back of the roof It wasn't until they walked around to the back yard. They saw that this massive branch had crashed through the ceiling opened up a hole in the kitchen and was placing a lot of weight on the rest of the roof I spoke with abby. PIAT. The daughter of the family as she saw this and she had a good sense of humor about it mom said, I always wanted to skype in my kitchen but now like this. And I when I was, there are lots of people had descended on the house to help the family out. Some are on the roof using a chainsaw to cut the branches of the big oak tree others were in the back cheering them on and still more people were inside the house moving furniture and belongings to try and limit the damage. We're trying to move everything before the ceilings caved in because it's looking like it won't last very long. So good spirit there despite the destruction did you get a sense from residents what they're planning to do next in the recovery? Yes. So obviously, it's always traumatizing after a major disaster like this people are thankful for what they have and they're thankful to alive and a lot of the people I spoke to just really relieved the damage from the storm was nowhere near as bad as forecasters thought it would be you know some people that I spoke to. You said, they were really expecting to come home to you know homes that had been completely flooded out and when they saw that that hadn't happened they were just you know really thankful but still it's not easy to recover from something like this. Things are in really really bad shape and without having power without having water, it's difficult for people to come back and it's difficult. You know to get the ball rolling when it comes to recovery work. So you know people don't know exactly when they're going to be able to you know get to the bulk of the work right now they're just kind of trying to like keep things where they are right now. So they don't get worse I. It's also late August in Louisiana. So it's hot and humid, and those aren't exactly the greatest conditioning to try to put things back together. That's Aubrey.

"Sunday morning Hampton roads it's Mary Catherine with another edition of Hampton roads perspectives and we have two beautiful sunshiny. Smiley happy faces in studio with us today good morning to carry gurney and Stephanie lion, Hello. Ladies good morning and you are here on behalf of the newly? Formed chapter of mended little? Hearts of coastal Virginia, that's a mouthful yes it is yeah, we we've been around for a little over a year now and we. Are here to support on children and families affected by congenital heart defects let's talk a little bit about that because I know you have a very personal. Story Stephanie so how did, your, involvement with mended little hearts of. Coastal Virginia how did that all begin I know the story but those, of you out there listening you. Might not know the story had it all of that come about so my daughter Laney was. Born in April of, two thousand, sixteen and she had. Four congenital heart defects that went on Undetected, until she was seven days old when. We had a very close call and to. Say the least and. Two weeks old she had an open heart surgery for the biggest of the defects being cooperation of. The I think. The, women are. The, families in this in this group everybody has a story and Sam are more severe degree than others but I think the common thread amongst these. Families is that you know we know what the others have gone through and no matter, whether. It's you know something a little more minimal it's you know it? Affects the family affects your? Babies absolutely especially when, it's a life and death situation which, yours was and Kerry what about you personally do you have a story. That you can share with us I'm just gonna ask you a player Michael closer to your face that pretty little face My firstborn Andrew was born with a congenital heart defect he had a sub pulmonary ventricular. Settled effect which is a hole in the heart so all congenital heart defects there's something. Structurally wrong that can cause heart failure symptoms or other additional things, as the child grows so we were not detected during pregnancy which. Many are summers mart he was born with a murmur we were sent, to the pediatric cardiologists at two weeks and it was confirmed there that, he had this VSD and we were. Able, to watch a conservatively which was great you know. A. Little bit of a relief with a newborn baby which you think is. Perfect perfect seemingly perfect? From the outside but knowing something so wrong with the thing? That gives life within that precious beating heart was just you know it it floors you And I know that like Stephanie said like our stories are so different, you know we. Were able to wait eighteen months before we had open heart surgery, which was great yeah we, went in for regular checkups and, things like that but there are stories in between that don't always this year is the same as, the same and, things -iety, during These are the same and just the questions that you have so many, little hearts of, coastal Virginia's, here to bridge that gap and to make those connections. Between families so that nobody walks this journey alone and I. Mean this was your Stephanie obviously your first run with congenital heart defects and use the, same Kerry, yeah no genetics involved I, think it's about fifteen percent of c. h. d.'s can be related to that but, it was you know I had a, friend whose daughter had open heart surgery I was able to reach. Out to her. At the time that was the only person I knew and, we'll because I think a lot. Of times, you know women are families in general no matter what it is that, you're going through. A, traumatic life experience a change you know whether it's divorce. Or cancer or you always want to reach out for that network of support you wanna fight you wanna find somebody And that's that's our main goal. Right now is to really just let families know that we're here and that we're here to help and support in whatever way we can with. Whatever resources we, have congenital heart defects, are, the number one birth defect in the US they affect one, out. Of, one hundred ten. Berths so it's very common and very scary extremely scary well if you're just waking, up with us, this morning, Sunday morning and Hampton roads we have carry gurney and. Stephanie Lyon co directors of the newly formed chapter of mended. Little hearts of coastal Virginia not only encouraging you to get in touch with them if, you are, experiencing a congenital heart defect,.
