My heart and thoughts go out to the fallen fire fighters in Charleston. May their families and fellow brothers find comfort in knowing that they are not alone in their mourning. I have been unable to go an hour today without thinking of all of you going through this.
Yes, if you have read my blog for a little while you know that my hubby is a fireman. He has been for 7 years now as a volunteer and was hired full-time in Feb. My only comfort at a time like this is knowing that these men died doing something they truly loved. Even though this is a tragedy that is by no means the norm, it was still with a heavy heart that I sent him off to work yesterday morning.
Even though we are new to the department, I already understand that the IAFF is a brotherhood like no other. I know that you will have help and comfort for many years to come. There is truly no other profession that pulls together in a time of need like the fire fighters.
Please take time out of your day today and over the weekend to say thank you for the men that gave their life looking to save another. And also for the continued safety of those all around you that will gladly do this to save yours.
