Calvin Bernard feels sick. The pain starts in his chest, runs down his arm, and then stabs him right where it began. A heart attack, he thinks. But it's just another spell of anxiety, the panic of remembering what he once had, like awakening from a nightmare to find relief in the morning, only to realize the dream is real. Before Katrina, Bernard lived in a house in the Lower Ninth Ward with his wife, Sharlene. Down the street was Alfred Lawless High, where Bernard once walked the halls and where his children went to school some 20 years later.
