Date:12/20/2007

CHICAGO, Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- "We have not finished burying our children," said New Orleans Councilwoman Cynthia Willard-Lewis. This is why the Greater New Orleans Clergy for Restorative Justice (GNOCRJ) in collaboration with the Samuel DeWitt Proctor Conference (SDPC) and Councilwoman Willard-Lewis is honoring the lost children of Katrina on August 18 and 19. Ambassador Andrew Young and a national delegation of dignitaries will join GNOCRJ and SDPC to commemorate the hundreds of children who lost their lives when the levees broke during Hurricane Katrina nearly two years ago on August 29, 2005. Reportedly, some children have not been buried. Children will pay tribute to their classmates, a single horse-drawn carriage with a child's casket will lead the procession, and the names of children who died will be read to the public.
