San Diego is on fire.

Before going any further, Chabad of San Diego is helping people find shelter.

    I lived in Mission Hills for 6 years, a block from Balboa park. And lived on a 36 footer in Mission bay 5 blocks from Shamu for 2 years.
    I love San Diego, its almost perfect.
    I will pray.

    “Firefighters risk their lives every day. They are as vital as soldiers, police officers and doctors. Firefighters keep us safe. When they die, a piece of our safety dies with them……”.

    Eric, I couldn’t have said it better!

    I used to live in Running Springs in the San Bernardino mountains. I have been monitoring the police and fire scanners there on the Internet and it appears that the two houses I lived in are both either in imminent danger or already burned. My kids’ grandmother, aunts and their families have been evacuated and their homes are also threatened, one of which I helped build.

    It is indeed a sad time and prayers for everyone involved are so richly needed. It’s also a time for reflection. I really don’t want to find someone to blame right now. I just want this test of our collective character, as individuals, as communities and as a nation, to bring us a bit closer together.

    I’ve been trying to contact my cousin – to no awail. He’s Navy and he’s out to sea at the moment, but his family is in San Diego. No luck finding any of them. I hope they’re okay.

    I was in that region several times this year. It is very sad; and I recall experiencing those winds on a mild day and remarking about them, while my west coast colleagues were explaining to me just how intense those winds can be.

    I was really touched by the outreach efforts of Hillel. I have been saying for some time now that our church should have a plan in place (in advance) for emergencies and how we should be ready to minister to our community if ever necessary.

    Good post.
