Make no mistake, I am making NO APOLOGIES for the sentiments and statements which were made. I merely wish to re-connect with a demographic which may have misunderstood the spirit of my rantings.
The year 2005 was a test of courage and resiliency for myself and many others and 2006 has been a year of aftermath and regrouping.

At the risk of sounding cliche, Americans are famous for their resiliency and stubborn will. Don't tread on us! Why shouldn't this idea apply to natural disasters, at least to some extent? We who have become notorious as problem-solvers the world over are facing our greatest challenges ever, so let's use our incredible skills and determination to succeed once again.
