California firestorms in the past 3 years have reached historic proportions in size and number of homes destroyed.
With my humble resources and immense passion I responded, learned and helped where possible.
Now is a time of retreating and refocusing. Exhaustion is immense and so is the wisdom gained.
With what was learned, the question now is how can we improve the outcome of these catastrophic events?
I am collaborating with experts and individuals on some specific initiatives . Thank you to everyone who contributed to relief efforts in any capacity that was within your ability.
No one will have the perfect answer in disaster relief, but a willingness to be part of the solution is what we need.
These are words I live by everyday, that are helpful for the most complex of challenges we face:
...what binds us together is greater than what drives us apart, and that if enough people believe in the truth of that proposition and act on it, then we might not solve every problem, but we can get something meaningful done. ~ Barack Obama, The Audacity of Hope, 2006
Disaster relief content was taken down that may return in the future. To those affected by current disasters, I offer you these humble words and wish you well in your journey home again.
