Officials say it will take months and even years before New Orleans and parts of the Gulf Coast have recovered, and residents and the government face tough questions all the time about how to proceed. CNN wanted to know how you would approach the task. We asked a new question each week, then posted some of your responses here and on CNN TV.

Some of the videos, photos and audio submitted may be selected for use in CNN.com's Hurricane Katrina special report, CNN television programming or other CNN programming services about hurricanes, so by sending information you are agreeing to our terms of use.
