I'm one of the lucky ones, and oh, how I know it.
In fact I think most of us - the lucky ones - are suffering from a little bit of survivor's guilt. We're the ones whose homes didn't burn down last week. The ones who weren't ordered to evacuate. The ones who didn't suffer from a loss of income as businesses shuttered when the fire drove out 40,000 people from the west side, emptying downtown Redding, which was already struggling to keep its head above water.
Friends, if you've read this far, I'm hoping you'll take a moment to consider how many people and how much work it takes to put together and deliver this website to you. As a contributor of content, I'd like to ask you personally to consider becoming a financial contributor. You can become a monthly subscriber to support the engaging articles that I hope have enlightened, informed, enriched and entertained you. I think this community is a better place because of A News Cafe and I'd like it to be here for the long-haul. Don't you? If you’d like to help out, please click here.Click here for more fire stories.
