MAYIM ON THE CALIFORNIA WILDFIRES

I write this from a place of comfort, privilege, and safety. I am far more fortunate than so many right now.

And yet I feel compelled to write about the human experience of being touched by fire.

For over a year I have been consumed with rage and fear over a Presidency that goes against my core beliefs of liberty and civil rights; freedom and justice. It is these values that my grandparents fled Eastern Europe to find in America.

I have felt so frustrated that I could not reach the President. I posted on Facebook and increased my Twitter presence. I wrote articles. I made videos. I sang. I wrote some more. I cried. I protested. Why didn’t he hear me?

And then the weather shifted. Literally. Global warming or not, the fires came to my home which I purchased this year in Ojai. The fire hit our property line at 9 pm last night. We were in the active burn. On the map. In the middle of the burn.

IMO a mistake to insert political stuff in there when it has absolutely nothing to do with the subject of wildfires (unless US government funding is to blame for the lack of containment and the ability to deal with these fires - which I don't believe is the case). Poor form Mayim.

I took from the article that she was trying to express an how a fear about what is happening politically can be so quickly overcome by a fear about what is happening locally.

I think she could have written about it, detailing her experiences and those of the people living in the area without mentioning anything political. Sounds to me like she was trying to somewhat also liken a 'political fire' to an actual real one she was now experiencing.

But that's just my take on it, it was an interesting read about the fire and my heart goes out to all those caught up in this.

I don't know anything about the geography of the LA area, but I know the cast all live in that area, so have been very worried about them through the fire seasons the last couple of years.  Sadly, my prayers were not enough and Johnny, Kiley, and now Mayim have all been touched by fire.  But. I'll keep on praying for them, and everyone else in the fire's way.  I live in Florida where we have hurricanes, and FEMA rushes in--but you don't hear about FEMA doing much for the fire victims.  I would have thought such a program woulld cover all sorts of natural disasters.

So it’s now 6 pm tape night here in California.  Do any of you find it strange that none of the cast members have posted an instagram birthday greeting to Mayim?  She is always so good about doing that for everyone else!

None were posted for Kaley on her birthday either, they've seemed to have stopped doing that for some reason.

I really love reading the BTS and the recap articles from Mayim, which made me enjoy the episodes much more, as a fan of the show and Shamy, I really appreciate her efforts. :give_rose: 

Now whenever we get some nice episodes about Shamy, I'm looking forward to reading her feelings.
