“It Don’t Matter To Me” is an awesome song by Bread, but other than these five words, has absolutely nothing to do with this story. That is completely fitting.

I am grateful for many things: My family, my friends, my community, my home… and the many, many other blessings that fill my life.

How did the Bird Rescue Center fare in the fires? Fortunately, ours is a story of Bravery and Hope.
