You will not find better people then live in North Dakota and Minnesota. We have worked so hard to save this city. But it might not be enough... :(

Yes, God bless the people of this place at risk for floods. They have done a great job. It feels good to see how everybody collaborates.

Joining in prayer for the risks to fade and normality to return quickly.

Love,

No crime, no complaining...Just a quiet determination to do what needs to be done...
A quote from a volunteer that sums up this whole experience:
"A personal story to put into perspective the community support going on last evening, after sandbagging all day, I had supper at a family friends home. At 8pm, I got a Code Red call on my cell that sandbag volunteers were needed for a dike across the street from my house (El Zagal), so I headed home. It only took me 10 minutes to get home, and by the time I got there, six hundred (SIX HUNDRED) people had walked out of their homes and come over to help sandbag at that dike. UNREAL."

3 million sandbags -- each weighing around 30lbs -- were filled and stacked by the hands of people working 14-15 hours a day to hold back the water. I am so incredably proud to have the blood of these people pumping through my veins.

Thank you for your prayers.
