Our thoughts and prayers especially go out to the people of New Orleans. The Guillory family can trace its beginnings in Louisiana to New Orleans when it was a french colony. New Orleans is unlike any other city in the world. Unlike other great cities whose tourist attractions entice visitors, in New Orleans it is the people of the city that attract visitors worldwide to this special and unique city. This great city and its people have delighted the world. Together they have introduced the world to a unique culture, hospitality, great food, and great people! It is now time for us to give back to the people of New Orleans. For more information, current news, and to offer your support and services, please visit City of New Orleans Homepage to keep you updated on the current information, rebuilding efforts and relief efforts.

OUTRAGED AT RELIEF EFFORTS! Following the hurricane the federal relief efforts were inadequate and inhumane. I watched along with the world, the treatment of American citizens; African-American citizens and I along with the global community was outraged, disappointed and disgusted. As responsible citizens, we must act and make our government accountable. Please contact your United States senator and share your opinion and disapproval of the federal response to this natural disaster turned human disaster. Please visit The United Stated Senate Homepage click on Senators at the bottom of the page then search by state. Your senator's mailing address, telephone number and email address is listed.
