Iowa's Flood of 2008
The song goes.... "We're from Iowa, Iowa.... that's where the tall corn grows."
But, not this year.
The flood of 2008 will drown the crops and hopes of many farmers, and disrupt the lives of those whose homes and memories succumbed to the waters.
Iowa, the land between two rivers.... the Missouri and the Mississippi.... has now been swamped by the rivers within, yet buoyed by the Herculean efforts and willing support of fellow Americans
"We're from Iowa, Iowa".... and, as another line celebrates.... "joy on every hand."
We'll stand tall again.
