  •  i weep for the family of the man (4+ / 0-)

    who did not make it and for the sorrow of the firefighters who tried so hard to MAKE him make it.

    these are the men and women that are everyday true heros and heronies - we can not pay them enough - we can not do enough to thank them for their sacrifice.

    what many people don't realize is that a firefighter has a much shorter life expectancy than the rest of us - from breathing in toxic chemicals, exposure, etc.  about 8 years ago, a firefighter told me that the average lifespan is in the 50s.  they know this when they become firefighters.

    we OWE them - our homes, our lives, our gratitude!  the disrespect shown these awesome people by those who would "cut" their services is unacceptable on every level!
