In the memory of the victims of Hurricane Katrina 5 years ago that flooded 80 percent of New Orleans and killed 1,600 people; Google homepage has now a Black Ribbon below its search box.

Hurricane Katrina was felt throughout the Gulf Coast Regions with Louisiana and Mississippi being the most destroyed states of US which experienced great floods.

The hurricane actually started in the Bahamas on August 23, 2005, and finally ended on August 30; but the damage remained for years.

During the height of Hurricane Katrina, the Bush administration was heavily criticized because of the allegedly slow response for support for the people of the area.

Meanwhile, US President Barrack Obama will be speaking at Xavier University and his spokesman said that he will mark the 5th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and be commemorating the lives lost.

So if you will be checking your Google homepage today and you will notice the Black Ribbon, I strongly suggest that you pause for a while and join the world in remembering that tragic moment caused by nature.

You may want also to close your eyes for a while be grateful that you are still here.
