Doing Battle

November 13, 2018

Everyone fights their own battles. Two videos showed up in my inbox this morning, and made me think.

Some are rather like Don Quixote, tilting at windmills. Or large trees.

Others impact the very lives of many. The second was showing several strike teams from local fire departments deploying to the California wildfires. It will take them 2 days just to get there, and then they will stay for 1 or 2 weeks.

I remember many years ago following a wind storm, I saw a line of power company trucks from British Columbia arriving. We had been without power at work for 5 days. I was ready to get out and cheer for them.
