This is a news photograph pulled from TV news video. The fire at the top on the right of the sign is 250 yds NW of my home. My property only received a dusting of ash due to the efforts of these men and others. I neither expected nor deserved the "good fortune" that befell me and would have preferred to have lost my"stuff".
These men died protecting "stuff" and not 1 bit of 'stuff' is worth even 1 life. Every time a group of us gets together to discuss funding and training for OUR 1st responders, we should have to listen to this recording. And the blame game goes on.
God forgive us, and God damn us!
Oh yeh? Well this was sent from the scary black electrical box under my desk, so there!
