This time last year I was homeless
This time this year I’m not quite homeless but don’t quite have a home
It’s like we’re stuck in limbo
Walking around with n95 masks
Like we’re living in some sort of war zone
Our homes, our forests, our livelihoods are going up in flames
Nobody is grieving for us except for those who live here
California, the golden state
Home of the grizzly bear
Big and strong
We will not fade away like this great creature for its spirit lives in all of us
We wonder, will our homes still be there
Will our jobs still be there
Will our schools still be there
Friends and family will they come back
Hold on tight, hold on strong
While the brave women and men fight on the front lines to keep us safe
To save our state
We will rebuild, we will overcome
We will shine brightly like the golden state that we are
Through the exhaustion and uncertainty
From the ashes we will be reborn.
For those of us dealing with these wildfires in Northern California.

"for its spirit lives in all of us" oh I got all teary-eyed when I read that. Amazing!
