The Long Road to Recovery
« on: July 24, 2009, 07:45:42 PM »
Hi Everyone,

While researching articles about the flood in Cedar Rapids, Iowa last June 13; I came upon a blog by Pamela Aanestad Rosenberg under the title of: Cedar Rapids Iowa, The News Trucks Have Left But We’re Still Here. Nothing I could write could say it better that what Pamela expresses in words and photos of her home town. I would like to quote some of Pamela’s thoughts expressed in her blog:

Quote
“This event has changed me and the way I look at things. In the past I watched stories about floods in other parts of the world and was saddened to see all of the destruction but then I’d move on and it was all quickly forgotten. It wasn’t until last year that I realized that it is after the water recedes and the news vans pull away that the real story of dismay, hope, fatigue, frustration, and perseverance begins. I learned that what they say is true looking at it on television doesn’t begin to tell the story. It is really so much worse in real life.

I have touched base with Pamela and she is thrilled about us coming to Cedar Rapids and what we do. She will be contacting others than can help spread the word of our copy run in October.
