    19 Firefighters die fighting blaze

    Just want to ask everyone to keep these guys in their thoughts. Prescott is where I went to nursing school and I knew quite a few of their firefighters, so it really has me and I think the whole area just in shock. The town of Prescott literally just lost 20% of their firefighters in one fell swoop.

    I am without words. The old quote 'all gave some, some gave All' comes to mind. Now I'm all bummed out.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.

    They proudly stand there to defend your lives and your property. How does America still produce such valiant hero's in this day and age of, "you owe me" and liberalism?

    It takes extra special extraordinary people to give their last measure of sacrifice of self for others. These are the people who made America great. These are the people who you hope your children will become. These are the people who you hope will respond when your a$$ and family is on the line. These are the people who I honor, appreciate, admire and look up to. These are the people I strives to emulate, not professional athletes making millions, not movie actors, not the local gang-banger or drug dealer. These are the people we need in politics and our public education system. These are the people we want and need as neighbors, friends, educators, etc.

    These are people to honor and pay tribute to; the firemen, the police, the EMT and our military that puts harms way in front of us and deserve our admiration, respect and gratitude as an individual and a nation. NOT some low life lying politician, Hollywood type, professional athlete or liberal hating American spousing collective socialism.

    There are so many anti-American politicians (think Ted Kennedy and hundreds of others) that are celebrated in death and their anti Constitutional agenda it's sickening. The real hero's that give life and limb for this nation are lucky to get a second page mention in the local liberal news rag.

    From my very heart; thank all of you that risk yourselves and your families well being to protect me and mine. Words will never be able to express my sincere gratitude.

    God bless the souls of all our American fallen hero's...
    I think, therefore I am...
