    The year 2012 was brutal for wildfires in Colorado.


    The fire damage this Summer near Ft Collins burned close to 100,000 acres.


    I have just visited the area. The devastation was enormous and heartbreaking.


    There were trailers everywhere. Homeowners were there, determined to rebuild & restore their lives the best they can.


    It's uplifting to see how their spirits perseveres throughout this tragedy.
