I couldn’t be prouder of my hometown. Eldorado shined last week under circumstances that would have overwhelmed many communities. As word first reached town about the raid at the YFZ Ranch and the need to house the children here, the first thing everyone asked was, “What can I do to help?”
Food, and diapers and bedding poured in. Pillows and bottled water. The good folks at First Baptist Church opened their Fellowship Hall and people from all over town converged there, and at the civic center south of town.
As proud as I am I must say that I’m not a bit surpised. I’ve seen it all before, like when a family has found itself homeless due to fire, or tragedy otherwise touches a friend or neighbor.
