Pictures of Hope

A lot has been written about Hurricane Katrina hitting the US southeast coast and the devastation it has left behind in places like Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi and New Orleans.

But sometimes the time for words stop and the time for hope and healing begins.

Amongst scenes of death and destruction, sometimes the pictures of hope are skipped. Here are a few:
