Mardi Gras

Although this brief history of carnival does not have much to do with the hurricanes, it is an important memory just the same. For me, as I am sure it is for many others, Mardi Gras is the silver lining. It is the celebration that refuses to yield to sorrows. In the face of adversity, war and natural disasters, when everything seems hopeless, Mardi Gras is there, putting a smile on everyones face. Thanks and enjoy! \r\n\r\nBrittany D. Roberts
