The article presents information on the impact of natural disasters on the cultures and traditions in the U.S. society. The Gulf Coast is among the richest areas in the U.S. in its history and diversity and thousands of people from that area are still struggling to recover from shocking losses of their homes, their jobs, and, in some cases, members of their families due to hurricane Katrina. The fury and force of Katrina left many children, some of them still babies, separated from their parents. The greatest gift parents can give to their children is the opportunity to do something for someone else.
