Although, this site is mainly concerned with the past, the tragic devastation in the United States in the wake of Hurricane Katrina cannot be ignored. Words can never fully describe the sadness felt or adequately express our sincerest concerns and sympathies to all those affected. We wish everyone affected by this tragedy the strength and courage to carry on during the long and challenging recovery and rebuilding process.
