Galveston, Texas -- Sunday, July 23, 2017
Freelander Little stands near an empty lot where her sister's home once stood. When Hurricane Ike devastated Galveston in 2008, Little's home was crushed by her sister's home. Little, two of her children and a niece now live in the home pictured at right, which is elevated eight feet off of the ground. "We came from a broken place to a healed place -- and still striving for better," Little said.
