Letter: Our heroes
To our firefighters. How can I even begin to thank you for how you saved our communities that were threatened by the fire May 11? Your efforts saved our lives, the lives of our animals, our homes, our beautiful prairie, our wildlife, and our way of life. I stand in awe in how you accomplished this.
As I look around the land affected by the fire, I see patches of scorched earth, and in between stand our homes. The fire was all around us, yet you saved our property and all the lives therein. I am grateful beyond words. When we were evacuated on Friday, we had no idea what we would return to. Because of you, we returned to the very lives we had before the fire. You are our heroes. God bless you all.
