     Whenever I think of Texas it conjures up thoughts of Cruz, Perry, The Bush family and so many things I disagree with. Then something like this happens and you meet the real people of Texas. Men and Women who struggle  with a lot of the same problems we do.
      Be it under such horrible circumstances, thank you for making me remember that Texans are first Americans, like me. And to the VFD that ran into the fire, my god I have no words. Rest in peace you heroes from the Great State of Texas.

    My greatest fear is letting myself run loose in my own mind. It gets kinda scary in there.
