    Wishing strength to Brandon McDonough and to all who knew and loved the 19. Heartwrenching to see him walk out there alone and give the prayer, but also such a fierce pride in the comfort he was given after.

    May those thrown-arm hugs of support still surround him in the weeks and months to come, when the rest of the nation has forgotten and moved on.

    He will need even more support in the weeks and mounths ahead. Glad to see someone realizes its not over for him by a long shot. As a wild land firefighter and struture firefighter I cant even imagine the pain of losing my team and being the only surviver. you left a nice comment.
