If I live to be 100...

If I live to be 100, I don’t know if I will ever…

… see anything as ugly as an emergency vehicle involved in a high-speed crash.

… hear anything as sad as bagpipes being played at a firefighter’s funeral.

… smell anything as bad as burned flesh.

… have as bad a taste in my mouth as when politics are played with firefighter health & safety.

… fully appreciate the sacrifices my family made because I chose to be a firefighter.
