Our Hearts Go Out

For the families and those affected by the explosion and fire in San Bruno/Glenview yesterday, our thoughts and sympathies are with you today. In one blink, lives were changed forever by this horrible tragedy. Though we do not know why events like these need to happen, we can be grateful that the ones who put their lives on the line every day were out there doing their jobs to prevent the devastation from getting any worse. Fire crews all across San Mateo County responded in a moment's notice, including North County Fire Authority and our Brisbane firefighters, who fought the flames throughout the night (they returned to Station 81 this morning at approximately 7:00am). We are grateful for your service, courageous spirits, and perseverance in the midst of these great tragedies. May we go forward today doing all that is within our capacity to help, even if that includes stopping and remembering all that we have. If you would like to donate towards the relief efforts of the Glenview Fire, please call 1-800-RED-CROS ( 1-800-733-2767 ) and state that you are donating to the San Bruno fire.
