Have you looked at some of the pictures from Hurricane Katrina going through New Orleans?  80% of the city is under water because two major levees broke, and the water is still rising!

This is a major disaster for New Orleans.  I wonder how well it is going to recover from this.

It will recover and sympathies go out to the families of the bereaved and dispossessed.The sad part is that Nature's balance has been disturbed and we can look forward for more natural disasters around the globe as Man continues to tamper with the mechanism that keep things together.Peace..keep hope alive.

Video That Everyone Should See on the New Orleans Situation

This is a thought provoking 8 minute documentary that someone has already put together on Hurricane Katrina.   It is something that really causes you to stop and pause a moment to grasp what is currently going on in that area and how fortunate most Americans are.

The file is very large but worth the wait to download.........
