CommUNITY. We will come together. We will rebuild. But for now we cry, mourn, unite, PREPARE, and brace ourselves for the coming days/weeks/months. We are Santa Cruz & if there is one thing that I have learned from the last few months it’s that this community will unite & come together in times of heartache & despair. I am praying for our town, our community, our firefighters from near & far, & for the persistence that these coming months will require. Stay strong. Don’t be afraid to lean on your community. We are here for you. 🙏🏽 Learn more about the #LoadItUp Challenge here.
