    Waldo Canyon Flag Raising


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     steristi says she felt a massive amount of gratitude for all the first responders and their efforts to save her community. Adding that she was in her back yard assessing the damage to her home when she saw the firefighters raising the flag at the top of her neighborhood. "I don't know if anyone was watching, we got lucky to see this," she says. "We were all busy trying to find out if our home survived and in the middle of all of this we looked up and saw the flag flying like it always does on the Fourth of July."
