Yesterday we drove out the quad cities as part of the Shakespeare tour. We passed flooded field after flooded field, then, as we got closer to the cities, we started passing flooded neighborhoods.
It was awful.
Sometimes I wonder about the capacity in my heart for sympathy. The first house I saw shocked me, and I couldn't believe what that family must be going through and what an awful disaster that must feel like. My heart went out to them completely. Then there was another house just like it. Then there were dozens and dozens more.
