BENEFITING: CENTER FOR SIOUXLAND
Material things might be just things. And, yes, home is where the heart is.
But, try to imagine a piece of your heart, dreams, and memories being swept away as you watch helplessly from a distance.
Roads are rivers and there is nothing to do but wait.
Land that was growing food is under water.
Where is a pregnant woman to give birth? The perfect nursery is gone.
And, of course, there are those we lose in these disasters.
We, personally, have some displaced deer in our neighborhood.
One gave birth to a fawn in my neighbor's backyard.
Let's get everyone back to where they need to be.
There are so many brave people with amazing attitudes coming out of these devastating circumstances.
I am putting a link to my local volunteer center and the American Red Cross.
For me it is about the floods, but, this is also about disaster relief across this country.
