A project of this size and scope cannot be developed alone. There are many people who have contributed to the development, implementation and coordination of this project. I want to extend special thanks to Gabriel Caro for his careful and tireless work designing and developing the web site and related technology. Kathryn Allegrini worked diligently to develop the variety of documents and materials that are part of the participant enrollment process. Chrissy Thurmond, Jeanne Blake, and Tom Yaroschuk have been wise advisors about how to organize, implement and manage the Expressions project. On the technical side, Walt Zimmerman and Jonathan Tyer have been generous with their consultations about photographic equipment and procedures. James Oppenheim has been a diligent reviewer about the web site and its organization.

A variety of people have been very helpful in identifying sponsors for this project. Kathy Scanlan, Peter Emerson, Mark Esterly, Jonathan Tyer, and Michael Mulvey have been instrumental in helping assure ongoing support for this project.

Last, but certainly not least, I want to express my very special thanks to each of the participants in this project. They let me into their lives, told me their stories, and let me take their photographs. They represent just how fragile we all can be under certain circumstances. They also represent the tenacity of the human spirit.
