From all of us at Bigelow Tea, our hearts go out to the nine firefighters who have lost their lives through the terrible tragedy in Charleston, S.C. where a blaze consumed a furniture store. This is, we know, a difficult time for the friends and family of such heroic men who have died in the line of duty while trying to help others and while trying to make the world a safe place. Their bravery makes this tragedy that much harder to accept!
As many of you know, our Charleston Tea Plantation is right outside of Charleston. The Bigelow family has had the opportunity to spend time in that wonderful part of the country in the last couple of years. The community is warm, caring, and giving, and we know that in this difficult time, the town will pull together and help each other.
You never know what life has in store for you but for sure every day is a gift! When we lose those we love and/or those who are doing good work, it makes you stop and take pause.
Create a little extra time today to reach out to those you love. It will honor the lives of nine brave men from Charleston and all Firemen who have lost their lives to save others!
Co-President, Bigelow Tea
