Greetings everyone, It is fire season in the Southwest; time to use care
with flames of all kinds. The recent loss of nineteen Granite Mountain
hotshots has been deeply felt here in Arizona. Everyone I know seems
to know someone who was connected to this event. It gives us cause to
reflect on the miracle of life as well as its uncertainty. Wherever you are,
please join me in taking a moment to be grateful to all first responders
who rush forward into perilous situations. Theirs is a life of caring, service,
and courage. May their dear families take solace in the time they shared
the memories they made and the gifts they gave in service.
