So I live here in San Diego, and the Harris fire came within miles of where I live. It was (and still is) a very humbling and thought provoking experience. I still can't believe that those fires were here.
I woke up Monday morning loathing my first midterm of the quarter when I get a call from a friend telling me to check out the news. Lo and behold, southern California is burning. All my classes were cancelled for the week because of horrible air quality, and fast-forward to the end of the week and here I am. I knew a couple of people who had to evacuate the fires, both in northern and southern San Diego county, but luckily their homes were not one of the ones devastated by the firestorms.
If anything, I would like to thank all the volunteers, firefighters, and anyone and everyone who contributed to helping out in this time of emergency. As for me, I did what I could, but I know that as long as their is a will, there will most definitely be a way.
