According to the Associated Press, President Obama called up Rick Perry to express his concern for the residents near Houston, Texas who have been amid one of the most destructive fires in Texas history. The President was on top of it all, and made it clear to Mr. Perry that the federal government would continue to provide assistance at the state and local level.
This is by far one of the most horrible things I have ever witnessed. It's on every local news channel, day in and day out and yesterday we got news from our University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center President that several employees lived in the areas where the fires took place; Some have even lost their homes.
I cannot imagine what it would be like to lose everything, especially with Ryan and I both at work, not knowing what's going on at home. Good thing Ryan works 5 minutes from home, so he could save our puppies quickly. There's no easy way to say this, but I'm also grateful that the winds took the fire in a northwestern direction because I have family on the northwest side, and it's something I couldn't fathom if something happened to them. I'm hoping and praying that this fire can be contained soon, because I know many people are being affected.
