Absolute devastation, thank God for the courageous firefighters who have worked tirelessly and risk their own lives to save other's. There.are.no.words. Still numb from the borderline shooting in our community, let alone having to evacuate your house and thank God our home is safe, but hearing of friends that have lost theirs. Please pray for the winds to cease, and for this chaos to end. We're not out of this yet. #westlake #malibu #thousandoaks #woosleyfire #newburypark #pray #onedayatatime
