California Is On Fire- Again
Paradise was destroyed a few years ago it really affected me. I had always loved Paradise and almost moved there at one point. I could not - and still cannot believe that entire town went up in smoke. It brings a tear to my eye still today.
Sequoias. This got me thinking about the Redwoods. They are safe for now, but it would be a shame to lose a large population of either the Sequoias or the Redwoods to these fires. It would also be a tragedy for yet another town to be consumed by these uncontrollable fires.
It is a sad fact that these wildfires will take place every year in California. Some are caused by lightening or other natural factors and some are sparked by demented pyromaniacs. It is sad to think that there are individuals out there who have no regard for human life and start these fires for their own twisted amusement.
I just hope that everyone in the areas of any fire or natural disaster are exercising prudent judgment and taking the appropriate precautions. And if you have the opportunity and resources to help someone experiencing a tragedy related to a natural disaster, please take that opportunity.
