Editor, the Advocate:
I am sending a BIG OL' Texas muchas gracias to all the folks who helped control and stop the raging suspicious wild Texas fires that terrified our state recently. Texas was blessed with countless volunteers who helped put an end to these fires.
To the many relentless firefighters and caring neighbors, thank you for helping ensure a tomorrow to all those who have lost their yesterdays.
As Texans, we are known for our hospitality and kindness. And it is great that we all seem to come together in a time of need.
I didn't want another day to pass without acknowledging the bravery and hard work.
Thank you, my fellow Americans. And let it be known, I'm proud to be a Texan.
Angela Howard, Victoria
