  • Moving words for all, about all...

    This was sent to me by a neighboring department who lost EMT Jeff Simpson on 9-11-01 as the WTC Towers collapsed, and the words ring so true... take it to heart, brothers.


    "As Brothers We"

    Our bond so tight, as brothers we
    Need speak no words to move as one,
    Nor turn from demon's breath to see
    That all are there till life's threat is done.
    From rest that is shared with familiar lore
    To adrenaline's rush to pull all one can,
    Towards the dragon's scream, in flight full bore,
    Our energy thrust beyond that of common man,
    Their last resort with backs to wall.
    We embrace the raging chaos, sure
    Success or death our only call.
    Even Satan's wrath will us not deter.
    Under St. Florian's watchful eye,
    God still allows that heroes die...

    ***************

    I'm not sure who wrote it, but am trying to find out as to give proper credit to the person who brought that familiar sting to my eyes, and a strong pounding into my chest. I will find that person, come hell or high water...

    Hey, it's MY opinion, not that of my department or peers.
