Day 186 – Heroes

6 Oct

During the fall season with all the festivals, parades and the like the NAFD is constantly helping out with these events and showing a strong presence in the community, in addition to the heroic work that they have to do on a daily basis. Every time I see a fireman I feel grateful and humbled. They are true heroes and I don’t think we take the time often enough to thank them.

    Really like this shot. The FD here had a open house this past Sunday, so many people turned out for it. Does a heart good to see a community supporting these guys and gals.

      Thanks Shari, it really is good to see people that work for our safety and risk their own lives get the support they deserve.

    I agree… those who serve the public never get enough credit or thanks. That’s a powerful picture… it’s a great reminder of what we should do the next time we see a firefighter.

    I actually know a firefighter in San Diego. He’s really a humble guy who just enjoys what he does… he amazes me with his dedication.

    Lovely pic, Mindy!

      Thank you so much.

      I work with the NAFD on a daily basis and just like your friend they all love what they do and are all very humble about it.

      They Mayor just gave out a few commendations to three firefighters who ran into a burning building to save someone, it just gives me chills to think about it and they act like it is just another day on the job. So humbling.

        I tip my hat off to every firefighter. I’ve never willingly run into a burning building, and I hope I never have to. The courage these people have is so inspirational… and they probably don’t think twice about it.

    That’s a great shot! God bless firefighters and all they do for our communities.

    Okay, on the ground that looks like pants with a belt, a dark t-shirt thrown over them to the right and shoes sticking up. Did you spot someone running around in undies?

      Thank you:)

      And this makes me so happy that you noticed…no there wasn’t anyone running around in undies, why you ask, because that brown shirt you see, is in fact undies HAHAHAHAHAH!!!! We laughed so hard about that.

        WHAT??? So did you get a picture of a firefighter running around with his hose hanging out?

    First of all, fabulous sentiment, thanks for reminding us all that we need to be more aware of things and people we should appreciate. Second, this shot is incredible!! Did you ask them to set it up for you, or did you just happen to catch such a great shot randomly?

      Thank you Bon, this was a random shot, I don’t have that kind of pull to set this stuff up LOL.
