They are first on the scene and last to leave. They risk their lives every single day. They save people. They save houses and buildings. So many days they are the unsung heroes of our communities. But not today. At least not today in Los Angeles. The world is on fire. They are converging on fires on the westside of the city, north of the city, and all around southern California. I am praying for firefighters. I am praying for pilots in planes and helicopters dropping water inside canyons that are exploding with flames. We throw the the word “hero” around way too much, so far as I’m concerned. But not today. Today the heroes are driving red trucks, trudging up steep terrain, and they are risking everything to help those in need. Join me in Taking a Breath today. A breath for firefighters.
