First we heard the reports of the greatest loss of firefighters since 911 . . . 19 dead . . . in the new raging fire in Arizona . . . and waited to hear which elite crew it was. Our son Al is out there somewhere--we know not where at this point-but learned that it was a "Hot Shot" crew local from Arizona . . . and were of course relieved for our own case, but saddened for such a loss regarding others.. The best of the best--those guys who put themselves on the front lines to protect and serve their fellow men and women. . . . This life, literally a "vapor" sometimes. The preciousness and gravity of it all is never far from my thoughts and prayers as I never want to become callous to the suffering that goes on in this fallen world, thanks to evil "humanism" which started it all. . . . I know God is good and one blessed day, all tears shall be done and rejoicing will carry forth that the rebellion is put down at last, forever.
