On Monday, August 29, 2005, New Orleans and the Gulf Coast regions were ravaged by hurricane Katrina, which damaged, interrupted, and destroyed the lives and livelihoods of millions. The lives of 1,836 people were lost and the physical damage was estimated at $81 billion. Since that time, we have witnessed horrific tornados, earthquakes, and tsunamis. What perpetually stands out in the aftermath of these disasters is the perseverance and fortitude of the human spirit to respond to and overcome the overwhelming challenges presented by these situations.
