One of the unfortunate realities of living in the dense throng of Greater Vancouver is that while our local television broadcasters did a reasonable job at providing coverage of the provincial wildfire disaster, they did not present the kind of detailed stories of humanitarianism as demonstrated by the wonderful people described in this story! Very often, we who live in the Lower Mainland are subjected to steady diet of negative stories and we often begin to see our world in a diminished light. This story brings to light, yet again, the true spirit of 'humanity' and 'community' that we sometimes forget remains the backbone of our society. To all the fire fighters that came from near and far to assist us in a time of perilous need in many parts of B.C., "THANK-YOU"! Your sacrifices have been duly noticed and reaffirms my sometimes waning faith in our world that we really should continue to have faith in our fellow man. Thanks for the posting 'LLM'.
