    Ok...if I decide to go with this print, I need a quote to go with it (or poem) to write on the matte.

    I'm having a hard time finding something that will go well with not only this picture, but the tragedy of Katrina, as well.

    Ok..here's one that made me stop for a minute and think...

    We cannot banish dangers, but we can banish fears. We must not demean life by
    standing in awe of death.

    ---David Sarnoff

    It's the circle of life, and it moves us all, through despair and hope,
    through faith and love, 'till we find our place, on the path unwinding.

    --John, Elton

    Good thoughts - I really like the first one. May I throw my 2cents worth in as well?

    Why can't the picture speak for itself? I think it does a pretty good job on its own. :)

    Ferny, think about the context of the picture, and the cause I am donating it too.

    I was. I assumed that's why you were donating it. To remind people why it needs to be donated and let people reflect and feel connected to the situation.

    Without the quote it feels like the image is directly related to the hurricane. A quote would distract form that. But.. that's just me talking.
