I shouldn't have to say this, but....

If you haven't contributed to any of the relief efforts for hurricane Katrina, then PLEASE, DO SO NOW!

For those reading the blog who are Albanian, or friends of the Albanian community, there is an Albanian community in New Orleans too, as well as a large, well-established, long-term Arberesh (Italo or Sicilio-Albanian, for those who've never heard the term before) community, too. So we have our own amongst those who are suffering right now. But that shouldn't be the reason you contribute to any relief efforts. The reason should be that, no matter what our origins, or how much pride we take in them, when it comes right down to it, there is only *one* race-the human one. And right now, there are hundreds of thousands-indeed millions-suffering in LA, MS, and AL. They need our help. Whatever you can do, no amount is too little, and you can never give too much. So give, and give as much as you can, to the charity or aid organisation of your choice. Falemnderit.
