The Thomas Fire affected each of us in unique and personal ways. Our neighbor to the East at Besant Hill School had their own collective experience. A snapshot of their story is detailed on their website, two days after the fire began:
I would like to take a moment to express my gratitude to our entire community, which not only entails the students, faculty and staff, but also our parents, alumni, trustees, and independent school colleagues from around the country offering assistance, a listening ear, prayers, and positive energy. It has been a whirlwind over the past 48 hours, and I am humbled by these responses and support.
