I have to take a moment of your time to praise firefighters. As you may or may not know, this morning a helicopter crashed in Northern CA and killed 9 firefighters with several hurt.
Through the years I have had the opportunity to place pets with firefighters and their families. I have to say that in my opinion, firefighters make the best guardians. They are a special lot and have great respect for all life, not just the human kind. I have seen them rescue cats from trees, puppies in storm drains, and of course, from fires. A life is a life to them.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the families, friends, and pets of these fallen firefighters. I ask that you take a moment also to include them in your prayers.
