Pete Tomitsch: First in a Series of Weekly Photo Stories
As we shared with you on September 24, 2012, Johnny Wilson from Wilson Photography, Inc. is providing pen, paper, and a complimentary portrait to people throughout the community who wish to tell the story of their experience during the Waldo Canyon Fire or its aftermath.
This effort has been very well received, and is underway. We would like to thank Johnny for all the hard work and heart he is putting into the project. We would also like to thank the participants, as this is an emotional undertaking. We believe many people will find some closure and healing by the writing or reading of the stories.
The wide range of individual narratives will be compiled to preserve a unique collection of first-hand accounts of the firestorm. The finished collection will be of great historical value for the state of Colorado and will be viewed by future generations at various locations both locally and across the State.
