On September 8, 2020 the Almeda Fire tore through our community here in Southern Oregon destroying over a hundred businesses and thousands of homes. In response to the widespread destruction, our community has come together in ways that are both humbling and inspiring. There’s a lot of work to be done, and a lot of great people out here doing it. Join me as I meet these every day heroes and listen as they share their stories of resilience, creativity and hope. Who knows, you may just be inspired yourself.
