People all over the world claimed to be in touch with the rain, but Clem believed the whisperers who gathered the most media buzz were liars. Sure, small miracles did happen. Some prayers were answered, how many out of millions?

They had submitted.
Clem stopped asking for data. She surrendered to the rain.
