column: Fire Aftermath Brings Out the Best

SLIGHTLY OFF THE MARK

 

            People are awesome.


            I’ve thought a lot about people over the years, and they haven’t always been good thoughts. I work, after all, in a business where I often see people at their worst, doing their worst. Actually, two businesses: the emergency services and journalism. In both cases, you don’t usually hear from people unless something is going horribly wrong.


            Then, last week as you read this, my sister’s house caught fire.
           

Everyone got out okay, including the pets. It’s important to start with that information, because naturally it’s the first thing people think of. That’s usually followed directly by “No one got hurt – that’s the important thing”.Collapse )
jaded_jamie gave me an awesome Sunflower LiveJournal gift to bring some color and brighten up what hasn't been the greatest August ever. Did I mention that it's awesome? So is he.
