Please hug your children and check your smoke detectors.

Smoke detectors are the only thing that saved a local family from perishing in a house fire yesterday. The house is a total loss. But everyone is safe. Our community is gathering around them and doing what we can. I have been gathering donations of clothes for the kids from co-workers.

But, damn, it is scary. I can not even begin to imagine starting my life over from scratch. No shampoo. No bras. Nothing. My heart goes out to them.
