Regarding your recent report, “Three months after brutal beating, California lawyer returns to ‘wonderful’ New Orleans”: It is crazy to think how big of an impact the city of New Orleans has on individuals and how much this city means to them. Bill Callaham, a California lawyer, is proof of this. A few months ago, Callaham was brutally beaten by a group of men in New Orleans and had to undergo countless hours of surgery. He lost his memory of the beating; however, he is reminded every time he looks in the mirror.

Although coming close to death, Callaham still loves the city of New Orleans and believes it to be a wonderful place. This shows that even the worst parts about this city cannot overcome the magic and spark that is New Orleans.
