Living in Southern California, we all know the dry seasons bring some of the worst brushfires in the country. Our hillsides are left littered with black soot from past rages and lives are threatened by encroaching flames. Every year our firefighters put themselves on the line to save our state, our homes and our families.
This is a small ode to those men and women who risk everything for others. One more ‘thank you’ may fall onto a pile of thousands of others, but from one SoCal native to the entire force of selfless firefighters, thank you.
