It's heartening to see the people of southern California pulling together and taking care of each other during the fires that are burning hundreds of thousands of acres. These competent, caring people are volunteering to help in enormous numbers. The voices you hear are honest and courageous citizens who don't need to sit back and wait for a government agency to bail them out. They have a legacy of self reliance that will get them through this trial and any others that come their way. We salute the rugged individuals of southern California.
