  • FIREFIGHTERS BEAR THE NATION'S STANDARD

    I have seen a lot of sniping on these forums. I'm seeing it still. I offer this thought:

    On 9-11-01, three men took it upon themselves to climb atop the rubble and lower a flag to half-staff. At the same time a man with a camera snapped a picture. At that moment, America's firefighters became the flag bearers of this nation.

    Conduct yourselves in a way that lives up to this honor. Reach out to all, regardless of faith.

    We carry a flag which represents freedom of, religion , want, fear and speech. If we as firefighters GIVE UP those freedoms or take them from our citizens, we may as well wave the white flag of surrender.

    Fate has given us a heavy load here. Let's carry it with pride and honor.

    Second!
    It's only my opinion. I do not speak for any group or organization I belong to or associate with or people I know - especially my employer. If you like it, we can share it, you don't have to give me credit. If you don't, we are allowed to disagree too (but be ready to be challenged, you may be on to something I'm not). That's what makes America great!
