Imagine waking up to a river in your backyard. That's what happened to the Gebo, Adams and Scott families on Charles Street in Mohawk after last weeks flooding. What's left are condemned homes, a pool full of mud, sink holes, a ruined Corvette and all family possessions destroyed. But the flood didn't take anyone's spirit or the compassion of others to help their fellow neighbors. I was amazed at the upbeat attitudes and generosity of so many people when I spent my 4th of July volunteering with The Salvation Army.
