Having gone through the 1993 floods while living in St. Joseph, I have been following the developments in Iowa closely.
One of the most heartening things to me in 1993 was the outpouring of help.
Today, I came across an example of that spirit in one place that I least expected it. I was visiting www.barackobama.com to do some research regarding his positions and found that prominent on this Web page was a plea for assistance for the victims of the flooding and a link to the American Red Cross Web site at www.redcross.org.
I urge everyone to contribute what they can to help the victims of this natural disaster, just as many helped us and our neighbors in 1993.
