An interesting Then and Now picture/video look at New Orleans one year later by AP photographer Mario Tama.
And, From an email I received from Share our Strength:
"Today, on the one year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, we remember the day that changed our country forever. As the rebuilding goes on, we still have work to do. Share Our Strength invites you to share your strength to help the ongoing recovery efforts in the Gulf by doing what you already love to do -- dine out.
Through Share Our Strength's Restaurants for Relief 2, presented by American Express, proceeds from over 1,500 participating restaurants across the country will help rebuild school cafeterias, open summer meal programs, provide assistance for affected restaurant workers, and more.
For a list of participating restaurants, from neighborhood bistros to four-star restaurants and national chains, visit www.strength.org."
