I ran across this meme on the inetertubes yesterday and thought it needed to be spread far and wide, specially to facebook and places where it will catch a lot of eyes:
Also as it was noted on DKOS a few days ago, these firefighters are not getting full benefits, including medical, while putting their lives and bodies on the line. Please contract your local representation and demand that these heroes get the care they need.
One more thing, User Celtic Merlin posted these quotes about our responsibility for these men and women:
“If Prometheus was worthy of the wrath of heaven for kindling the first fire upon earth, how ought all the gods honor the men who make it their professional business to put it out?”
-- John Godfrey Saxe, (American journalist, poet, and lecturer) circa 1850
I can think of no more stirring symbol of man's humanity to man than a fire engine.
-- Kurt Vonnegut
