“Hello my Friends. I have had some time to reflect on what happened up here in Butte County and I encountered a major setback in my process. I know there was nothing we could do with the Camp Fire. I know now that Mother Nature had different plans that day. When we got there it was small but we had no access to the fire so we had to go defensive and protect the communities in front of the fire. So many people are dead and there is destruction on a different level that I have never seen before. When we made a stand at my station at 4am I hit my knees and cried because I was sure it was my last stand and I most likely killed my people. 65 mph winds and fire everywhere. The firefighters felt the same but we fucking did it and we made it through. This one has changed me forever. I love you all and I thank you for the support that was in my head when I was ready to give up. I was at the end of my rope but I knew I couldn’t give up on my people and I knew they were just as afraid as I was. We pulled together and saved each other. I saw all your faces in Idaho and you were all smiling and it gave me strength. Thank you all! I love you all more than you know! In the face of all this devastation my Thrive brothers and sisters gave me strength! We are strong and we can accomplish anything!” – Matt McKenzie
