Thank you 🙏🏻 to ALL of the first responders & city officials throughout Ventura & Los Angeles County who saved people’s lives, loved ones & cherished possessions.
If you’ve been watching the news, you have been seeing the complete devastation in Southern California. It was every bit as much of a nightmare as it appeared. Also an event that has truly shaken to the core every man, woman, child & animal in the cities of Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village, Oak Park, Malibu & Lake Sherwood.
The devastation of these fires are usually measured by acres, structures & perimeter lines. But, having witnessed this event up close & personal, not near enough is said about the thousands of lives & structures that these brave men & women save. Often, they are called heroes... I believe that is an understatement. Those of us who (wisely) run away from fires will forever be indebted to these highly skilled & highly trained professionals that run toward the danger. It’s not hyperbolic to say they are “putting their lives on the line,” for that is what they are doing. 🌟 Thousand Oaks will never forget the young men and women senselessly killed at the Borderline Bar & Grill on Wednesday. And we will always remember, honor & salute our fallen hero, Ventura County Sheriff’s Ron Helus. He gave his life to save people’s lives on Wednesday. Our memory of you is forever imprinted on our collective conscious. And our gratitude is eternal.
Thank you again to ALL of you. Your actions & bravery are simply peerless & nothing short of remarkable.
