I will be the first to admit I am not very religious, but this whole tragedy has humbled me and I have been praying.
Praying for the wives, children, parents, families, girlfriends, and friends of the firefighters to find strength.
Praying for the lone survivor of the Hotshot crew to find peace about losing his 'brothers'.
Praying for rain to come and the winds to calm so the remaining firefighters can safely contain the fire.
Praying for the 250 families that lost their homes to this fire.
Praying for our state of Arizona during this scary wildfire season.
Praying for the families of firefighters everywhere that were so vividly reminded about how dangerous the job of these men and women can be.
I am blessed and grateful to live in a community that is able to come together in a time of tragedy and show such a great outpouring of love to honor the brave men that died on Sunday. Last night our community had a candlelight vigil to honor the fallen men. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend, but thousands of people from the community banded together to show support for the families and honor those brave men.
Thank you for allowing me to share my heart with you. Words cannot really express all the things I am feeling. On my personal Facebook page last night I shared that I would love to give each and every one of the wives, children, girlfriends, parents, brothers, and sisters of those brave men a huge hug.
We honor those 19 men for their courage, bravery, and selflessness in order to keep the rest of us safe.
