At least, when I read this blog describing how two east Texas women set up emergency services for firefighters fighting a local wildfire. With a little bit of help from their friends and (I hate to admit it) Facebook, they provided the firefighters with a place to sleep, showers, food, drink, repair services for their equipment, and a lot else. Despite a few (IMHO deserved) swipes at FEMA, this blog isn’t about how government fails. It’s about how a few ordinary (IMHO extraordinary) individuals and a community did what needed to be done on their own.
Thank you, Kenna and Tara. You’re an inspiration. And thank you, Robert Langham, for blogging about this.
