I’ve been trying to think of what to say about the tragedy that happened.
This is what came out
Tomorrows become our Yesterdays.
It’s in the “Nows” that we build the foundations of our past
And the stepping stones of our Future.

******************** At least to me, Firefighters appear to live in the “now”. They live life to the fullest, pushing themselves and their environment to the limit. I take comfort in knowing that those who lost their lives at least lived them the way they wanted to. So many people out there live their lives in the “I wish I had” or the “what if’s.” I know that for me, I feel twice blessed for knowing my HS FF. One, for the love that we share, and two for the privilege of seeing the passion and fire for life in his eyes.

My heart goes out to those families who had their loves ones taken from them, and that wonderful spark put out.
