Nobody knows yet how many people are dead because they didn’t move quickly enough to escape fast-moving California wildfires.
Our homes and our stuff and, in some cases, our pets are a strong emotional anchor that often prevents us from recognizing, accepting, and reacting to a clear and present danger.
That’s why this video of a woman fleeing the Malibu fire is getting pushed bigtime by the authorities.
This very graphic video shows the dangers of a fast moving fire and how important it is to leave affected areas after fire officials declare an evacuation order. "The fire came so quickly. One minute it was calm and then suddenly they were on top of us," Rebecca Hackett said. pic.twitter.com/bCGYmgtxVf

Rebecca Hackett made it out. She can live without the judgments, though.
