Ariona fire fighter locket

It was with great sadness that I watched the reports yesterday of 19 fire fighters who lost their lives in Arizona. These brave folks gave all they had protecting others.

I live in Colorado, and the last two years fires have taken a toll on our state. The grief you have as you watch things like this unfold is so incredible. To see people lose their homes is very sad and it has to be hard to rebuild when you have lost everything.

This also brings home to me that I have friends who have family members who are fire fighters. Every day they go out and put their lives on the line to protect others. Every day they must worry about whether their loved one will return home safely.

I imagine folks in Arizona will do just what we have done in Colorado. You come together, stronger than before, and rebuild your lives. It is simply what we do as a nation.

Today my heart is heavy for the loss of lives and the family members who will now go forward without their loved one. I trust you will also send a prayer up for them as they move through this process.
