Leah Turner is asking for our help.
The country singer’s home state of California is experiencing a terrible wildfire disaster, with more than 20,000 people already evacuated and, sadly, at least 17 lives lost as the blaze continues through wine country in the northern part of the Golden State.
In the wake of this heartbreaking news, California native Leah took to her Instagram with an emotional message thanking first responders.
This hits home for me .. this is my home state, and it’s up in flames! We are so blessed to have the men and women that fight for us. With all the tragedy that is happening in our world today. Hug and thank a officer , a paramedic , military and a firefighter . They risk their lives . #vegasstrong #california #sendtherain
“We are so blessed to have the men and women that fight for us, with all the tragedy that is happening in our world today,” she wrote.
It’s a humbling reminder for us all right now, as we remember the tragic events of last week in Las Vegas, where first responders worked quickly and tirelessly to protect and save concertgoers from gunfire in the Route 91 Harvest Festival massacre.
We truly owe them everything, and we love Leah’s challenge: to hug and thank an officer, a paramedic, a soldier and a firefighter to express our gratitude.
That’s something we can probably all agree on in these uncertain times.
