All it takes to be a hero is to do the right thing...

As you may recall, we were in New Orleans just 12 weeks ago. Little did we know that New Orleans' days were numbered. Below are some of the sights from our trip. We can only hope that future generations will once again be able to enjoy what was a fantastic city.

This is the bridge that goes over Lake Pontchartrain. This bridge was washed away in various places and alone will be a great challenge to rebuild.

Above is the world famous Superdome where U2 performed at the Superbowl a couple of years ago. It will be a great day when U2 takes the stage there once again...

Above is the St. Louis Cathedral, the oldest Cathedral in the United States. It was built in 1720.

Here's an inside shot of the Cathedral. It is amazing, and hopefully wasn't terribly damaged.

Above is a night shot along the banks of the Mississippi River.

A blue colored grave at one of the many cemeteries in and around New Orleans. Graves are above ground in New Orleans.

A shot of one of the scenic streets in New Orleans' French Quarter.

Another shot down one of New Orleans' many scenic streets.

The St. Charles Streetcar (do not call it a trolley!). According to the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, it is the oldest continuously operating street railway system in the world.

A couple of New Orleans' street performers. Note: her eyes are closed.
If you think the pictures are interesting, we ask that you do what you can to ensure that New Orleans is able to rebuild. Remember, all it takes to be a hero is to do the right thing. Below are some links that the Vertiblog endorses where you can make a charitable donation that will make a difference.
