I couldn’t imagine nor assume what types of story will happen in 2019. There’re too many unpredictable things that happen in life, the Camp Fire being only one of them. The future sometimes looks like the morning fog in a Northern California winter.
Even though there’s uncertainty, I still have to move forward. Step by step, I wrote down the stories, my stories, the many stories of Camp Fire. While on the surface they may seem like tales of destruction, loss and grief, they are actually stories about the happiness of survival, mixed with the sadness of loss. These are the stories connected by love and hope.
