I’ve always had a soft spot for firefighters probably because growing up we lived a block away from a firehouse. Walking to the library that was next door to the firehouse I’d always peek inside the firehouse to see what was going on! Clearly, I’ve had a thing for firefighters since I was very young.
I think too often we take for granted those men and women who willingly sacrifice their lives for our safety and well being. Here is another fine example of firefighters who go above and beyond the call of duty.
Firefighters were called to battle a blaze at a commercial building in Anaheim, California, firefighters arrived on the scene to extinguish the flames and make a patriotic rescue. In the middle of fighting the fire, two firefighters spotted an American flag flying atop the building. They were able navigate the flames and smoke, reach the flag, take it down and fold it properly.
They not only did their best to save lives, the structure but also one of our country’s most precious symbol, the American flag.
These men and women are the real heroes. Heart be still. ~grace
