Out of danger, under control, the fire suppression work continues — 1 Comment

  1. Had an emotional reaction at the Village Foods as dozens of hungry, tired, black-faced and charred clothing fire fighters lined up to buy food and then presumably go back to the front. Maybe it was a well-deserved break while the fire is under control, who knows. As tears welled up I started a standing ovation and a few joined in. Their beautiful young faces one-by-one lifted when they realized who was being honoured. Not knowing any other way to thank them in the moment, quickly grabbed dozens of chocolate bars and threw them on the counter (they were handy at the checkout) and bagged them up asking one of the guys to share with his colleagues. Thank you seems too small…they are protecting us. How fortunate we are to have those young passionate people helping to keep our homes and livelihoods safe. We are very blessed. It’s in our back-yards, folks. I for one will seek other ideas on how to support them. Thanks for keeping us in the loop, Britt.
