Residents are pleading for relief from the smoke. Appeals from teachers on behalf of their students, mothers for their infants and unborn babies, parents for their children, adults for their older parents, husbands for their wives, wives for their husbands, and neighbors caring for one another. It is impossible to read the complaints and ignore the deep compassion for those who are suffering and desperate appeals for help. This community loves and cares for one another and responds when others are hurting.
