In our first Storycast episode, Caleb James reads a short story entitled “The Ocean The World Ignored” by DPW writer, Ashleigh Hatter.
“This is for the men and women, for the families and communities and livelihoods that have been lost and forever altered. I can never know how much you’ve lost in these floods, and I know these words won’t fix anything. But I wanted to show you that you aren’t forgotten, your trials are not insignificant, and no matter how hard the media tries to ignore the pain this catastrophe has inflicted on you, I will do my part to make sure your needs are voiced and your stories heard.“
For all the victims of the 2019 Midwest Flood, we remember you.
