It is the end of the semester for me, so I’ve been caught up in papers and final projects and have been neglecting the blog. My birthday recently passed and my wonderful sister sent me the new Death Cab for Cutie EP on iTunes. It came with this music video which I just watched and it made me cry. It is such a sad and beautiful story based on the wildfires that happened in California a little while back. It really got me thinking about how in times of tragedy communities come together in solidarity. When events like 9/11 or Katrina or the Tsunami happen the silver lining is that you get to see the love people have for one another and the sacrifices they are willing to make to help each other out. So please enjoy this video.
