On a day when most are remembering those lost and the hero’s that brought the nation hope I find it hard to post about “normal” life stuff.
Instead of talking about where I was and how I felt I thought it was fitting to recognize some hero’s that are working hard today to put out the Mt. Diablo fire.
Mt. Diablo is a part of my sisters daily running life, and it’s a special part of my running life because my first run with my sister was a few weeks ago on the mountain.
I’m thankful they are working hard to save the mountain, homes, and lives that could be impacted by loosing everything in a fire.
Please take a look at THIS link for more pictures of their efforts and the conditions they are working in. It’s hot on that mountain without a fire!
And, to echo my sister I’m shocked and disgusted that someone would break into two of the fire stations and steal their personal belongings out of their lockers. There is a special place for despicable people like that and hope they end up there soon!
9/11/01 never forgotten.
