Challenging you to do more than wear a sticker or say “never forget.”
I have to say I’m not much of a line-of-duty-on-my-shirtsleeve type of person. I am very supportive of those who have lost family and friends and their efforts to keep the memory of their loved ones alive. What I dislike is the almost commercial aspect of the remembrances of some of our fallen firefighters. It seems as though we are content to say ‘never forget’, don the appropriate sticker and t-shirt and rest our local image upon their sacrifice. Justin Schorr said something to me in an email about such remembrances that was confirming to me. That said, I’m challenging you today with the photo below.
Find out where it is, what it used to be and how it impacts your operations, personally.
If you’re stumped I’ll have the answers and suggestions tomorrow.
