Today, Nanci Wilson and I visited the Steiner Ranch neighborhood destroyed by the fire earlier this week. We came across resident Dan Stern, who had his house completely destroyed. During our interview, we realized Dan had quite a story. He was an air force veteran and was recalled to active duty the day before he was to be married after 9/11. I turned around and this amazing sight caught my eye. Placed in the middle of is chard front doorway, the ultimate symbol of what this country means to him, and the strength to continue. I was taken back by this image for what it stands for and applaud Dan for his bravery and drive to move forward. I wish him and his family the best.
