I grew up in Marion and Cedar Rapids: it's heartbreaking to see what all of you are going through. If anyone can show the world how to handle a crisis the right way: with dignity, honesty and self respect it will be the people of Iowa. God Bless!

We live in the St. Louis area now and can not image what everyone is going through. Our prayers are with all the Iowa residents. The pictures do not even begin to tell the story.
