Known for it's beauty and history, Lahaina Town, a small community in Maui has been devastated by wildfires this week. The visuals pouring in over social media show a terrifying scene.
According to reports, people were fleeing the area with some even jumping in the ocean to avoid the intense and rapid growth of the fire. Several had to be rescued by the Coast Guard.
Lahaina holds a special place in my heart. It is literally my favorite place on Earth. It's where I got married and where my entire family came together to celebrate in Family Reunion-style. My grandparents swam in the ocean and lived it up in Lahaina Town with the kindest of people. Memories I hold so dear. I'm sending all my love and prayers to the people affected by these horrific event.
