You can read the news articles about this like the one here.
But speaking words from the heart, I found this from Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes here.
.. it is said they were carrying 50-70 pound packs, hiking 7 miles to the fireline, known for their aggressive problem solving, working extreme hours in fire and flames all around, average age 22 years old– it is said tonight that 18 of the 19 crew of firefighters who died in the Arizona fires when the fire jumped– were from the Granite Mountain Hotshots Fire Team. 19 young beautiful lives. Gone.
Their names are not being released out of respect for families.
I cannot begin to think, say enough, or too little, or too something. One of my friends has a boy on the firelines in Ariz. I am waiting to hear he is safe. That as many as can be are safe.
For those who were lost…
Shakespeare was one of those who said it best in the times of unspeakable loss…
…Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.
May all be comforted in every way possible, now, and in the days to come.
