When things get hard sometimes it gets difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel. This last November, a deadly fire called the Campfire struck all through the state of California. During the campfire people not only lost possessions but also, their lives. They always say to find the good in everything, but for these people, it was difficult when they were left with almost nothing.

A high school volleyball team in Northern California was also hit hard by the fire and lost almost everything.

At Paradise Adventist Academy in Northern California, many families and students were affected by the recent fires in California. Many losing homes, clothing, cars and much more. The volleyball team at this specific school were in total despair when they were scheduled to play a team in Auburn, California, even though many members of the team had lost everything in the fire.

Many of the fans and families from Paradise Adventist Academy, decided to drive 80 miles to Auburn to support the team. The Paradise Adventist Academy volleyball team made makeshift jerseys with numbers written on the back with sharpies in order to play. When the other team arrived at the court, everyone was in total shock.

The school in Auburn surprised the players from Paradise Adventist Academy with thousands of dollars of donations, brand new jerseys, new shoes, and food for each of the players and the school.

To me, this article shows true character about both teams. One of the things that make me happiest is seeing others succeed and seeing others build people up. Sportsmanship is sometimes hard but very necessary. People often forget that just because you support another’s success, that it won’t dampen your own. One of the biggest things about life is helping pick up the people around you and help them grow. Everyone needs a little help at times. The Auburn volleyball team did all that and more to help pick up the Paradise Adventist Academy volleyball and watch them succeed.

Paradise Adventist Academy team was at last complete, and they found the light at the end of the tunnel.
