Billy and Pancho
by Jon Paul Olivier
Hurricane Gustav hit Houma, Louisiana, in September of 2008. Among those working on the cleanup were two men who forged an unlikely friendship. Billy was a tree cutter from Arkansas, Pancho a laborer from Honduras. Divided by language, they found a way of communicating. Then a tragic accident left unanswered questions. A journey to Honduras answered many of those questions and changed lives.
