Colorado Wildfires: Americans Scramble to Safety

 Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Colorado who are suffering through wildfires more massive than any in the recorded history of their state (and the other western states suffering from similar conditions). Many are losing homes during these firestorms. I had intended to put up some very interesting videos put up by private individuals who did a very good job capturing the personal nature of this tragedy. However, I cannot find the videos today I saw yesterday. Still, this ABC News video captures the horror of it all. These flames are moving rapidly and are hard to contain. The closing speculation in the first segment of this news video is particularly chilling.
