"The Hero is often the commonly the simplest and obscurest of men"
David Henry Thoreau
"What is a firefighter?
He's the guy next door...
He's a guy like you and me with warts and worries
and unfulfilled dreams. Yet he stands taller than most of us.
He's a fireman...
A fireman is at once the most fortunate and the least
fortunate of men. He's a man who saves lives
because he has seen too much death. He's a gentle man
because he has seen the awesome power of violence
out of control He's responsive to a child's laughter
because his arms have held too many small bodies
that will never laugh again...
He doesn't preach the brotherhood of man.
He lives it.
