What is a firefighter?
He's the guy next door~~
He's a guy like you and me with 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~~
