Little would I think when I was watching the news on CNN last night I would hear of such a horrifying and sad story about the loss of 19 heroic fireman in Arizona who lost their lives fighting a mighty blaze.
Never in my almost 52 years on this earth have I heard of that many fireman losing their lives to keep a blaze away from people’s homes.
I was born in Tucson and visited my uncle there recently and know firsthand how hot and dry the Sonoran desert can be. It was the biggest reason I decided not to move there, even though the apartments were very inexpensive compared to over priced southern CA.
I want to say God bless you to all the families and friends of each fireman who will never come home to their earthly home but who has come home to His Maker God Almighty where through their incredibly selfless actions and heroic deeds I am sure are sitting at the highest helm in Heaven.
I hope all the wives of each fireman somehow find peace and solace in their hearts and an angel is beside them when they sleep so they don’t feel lonely.
I also pray for the children who lost their fathers all too soon in this tragedy. They are their father’s sons and daughters and they also will be great and do great works just as he did. I hope their tears are wiped by their mothers and Great God Almighty gives them the Courage they need to simply go on.
Here is a salute from Paulette Le Pore Motzko to the Hot Shot Fire Team and their families and friends.
I didn’t know them but it puts tears in my eyes now.
I am sorry for your loss at this time.
