Always heartbreaking to have to see families hit with a fire anytime of the year but it's really tough at this time of the year when you see that ruined Christmas tree and the packages under it charred, wet and probably ruined from the smell of smoke in anyone's home from a fire right before Christmas. The children are the ones who suffer the most to me as they are the ones who have gotten so excited looking forward to that upcoming Christmas morning. Rich or poor the pain is all the same. Fire is never racist or does it care how much money you have when it decides to attack you it has only one agenda in mind and that is to destroy all it can get ahold of. Keep those in mind and in prayer if that is your way and reach out to your neighbors no matter who they maybe when a disastrous event such as this strikes and be thankful hopefully that you have been spared from such.

Also be thankful for all the Public Safety people who will have to deal with these frigid temperatures here in winter giving aid to those in need.
