Telegram of condolences from the President of the Republic of Poland to the President of the United States

On 1 September, 2005, President of the Republic of Poland Aleksander Kwaśniewski sent a telegram of condolences to the President of the United States of America George W. Bush upon the tragic consequences of the Katrina Hurricane.
The telegram reads:
On behalf of all Poles and from myself I wish to extend our sincerest words of condolences and solidarity upon the tragic consequences of Katrina Hurricane. People in Poland were greatly saddened by the news that the hurricane, notwithstanding the preventive measures undertaken in advance, caused horrific devastation on the territory of the states of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama as well as in adjacent regions.
But foremost I wish to express our deep grief and sorrow that the destructive element claimed the lives of scores of US citizens – of a country that time after time proffers effective material help to other nations and countries worldwide.   
Together with all Poles I am horrified by the scale of destruction wreaked by the hurricane and the enormity of human suffering this natural disaster left in its wake, brought home to us with full force by the images relayed from the scene of the tragedy by the mass media.  
Please pass our heart-felt condolences to the families and loved ones of the victims of this calamity and to the authorities of the states affected by the disaster.
