This is another photo that did not appear in the paper. It's of the Camero family in Pass Christian comforting each other as they cried at the end of services at Our Lady of Lourdes Church on Menge Avenue. "It's a wonderful release of tension and fear," said Luis, in white t-shirt.

The images here are disturbing. It really hits home and makes you wonder.Here in NC we are all complaining about gas prices. These people do not have anything left.I think the people of NC need to quit complaining about gas prices and be thankful we still have homes, food, and vehicles.Most of all, family members who are not missing.My heart goes out to all those people in la.

Hi, I am an industrial design student living in California, and I am deeply concerned about the victims of Hurricane Katrina. I would like to design and propose a product that will be helpful/useful in future disasters similar to this one. I have contacted disaster relief programs about the needs of the victims, but I would also like to hear from first-hand experience.

If possible, please tell me what kind of products do the Katrina victims need? Not as in food, water, or shelter... but products such as a portable cookers, sleeping bags... etc. Also, improvements on current products? or products that would be helpful for prevention.

Also, additional information such as age, gender, and location would greatly aid my research.

Thank you for your time. God bless.

Please contact me via:

The only way I can relate to the apocalytical images you've shown is that here in Nebraska a town last year just got wiped off the map by a tornado. I know, not near the devastation, the scope that you tortured souls in the south have, but from what you have related the spirit of survival, though stunned is not on the ropes cut and bleeding yet. You will survive, bury the dead, rebuild, and go on--what are the alternatives? My prayers are with you.

PS I am on disability, so all I can do is offer encouragement-sad to say.

Hey... I know how you feel. I live and attend school not far from what used to be the Big Easy. My heart is breaking. I'm pretending otherwise... almost convince myself.

I was in N.O. the week before Katrina. I'm still reeling in shock. It's like 9/11, all over again, only this time, it's in my backyard, instead of all the way across the nation.

I still have friends missing. Where are they? No phone service, so how can I check? I mean, I call them, but I get no answer, and the towers are down anyway...

My school has re-started, but we're getting tons of new students from the N.O. area... I'm wondering how we're all going to survive, but I know us--we will make it!

I'm grateful to see the signs of humanity returning, the worshipers crying moved me to tears, too. The stories about how the little people are getting along make this catastrophy bearable to follow when one is too far removed to help. Good work and keep them coming.
