Thank You, Firefighters!

I captured some images of the destruction left by the Poinsettia and Cocos Fires.

A charred canyon and some singed trees, but a home remains standing near the fire line.

Watching the campus nearly burn last week awakened in me a sense of pride and emotional tie to CSUSM I didn’t know I had. I’m so glad that my memories of this place can stay preserved due to the diligent efforts of our area’s fire crews AS WELL AS the CSUSM facilities personnel who worked to keep the fire at bay as firefighters made their way there on Wednesday.

Even our community’s littlest members are expressing their thanks.
