I sit in my office, with all the windows and doors of my house closed tight. I am 20 miles from the nearest fire, but the smoke and ash are still thick and it makes me think of all of our CA DEN members that currently packing up or have already been evacuated.
I’ve watched the news in horror as they have highlighted areas that have been evacuated, show houses burning down, and they are the same areas we have had DEN events with our members. Last night, they mentioned they have evacuated so many people, it would be like evacuating Pittsburgh!
I did hear from Linda Foote, Poway DEN member, yesterday who had just been evacuated from her home and then even her district. I want to hear from the rest of you as well. Let us know if you are doing fine and if there is any way we can help support you.
For now, I think I speak for all of Discovery Education and our incredible Discovery Educators, when I say our thoughts and prayers are with the CA DEN!
