There have been so many examples of human goodness in action this week following the tragedy that took the lives of 19 Arizona firefighters.
Whether it's an original song from the heart, or a bouquet of flowers from your grocery story or garden, Arizonans have been paying it forward in every imaginable way to bring some peace to the families of the 19 brave men who died protecting everything we hold dear.
Businesses have put their profits on hold, making T-shirts and other products to raise money for those who lost their homes, and there has been tremendous generosity shown at phone banks and pledge drives.
Vince Filligin has fire worries of his own. He's a member of the Pine Lake Fire Department, currently battling the Dean Peak fire, but he wanted to show support for his lost brothers in Prescott.
"I started to get goose bumps crossing the street. I'm cold even though it's hot out," Filligin said.
Robert Westall who may never be able to show the gratitude in his heart. The hotshots who perished, saved his life and he wants others to know the price that was paid.
"I want everybody to know that if they didn't do what they did, none of those people would have gotten out, I mean, they saved my life. They saved my family, so thank you," Westall said.
One thing has become clear through this terrible week. When people are struggling to figure out how they can help, the answer is simple: any way they can. No offer is too big and no gesture is too small.
