Today while we are at the virtual kitchen table, and maybe combining stations or companies for the traditional thanksgiving meal, lets give thanks for being members of the greatest profession in the whole world....The Fire Service.
Be thankful for all that we have, remember those that have less than us and let's have a quiet and safe shift.
I do have an idea for this year though....when we gather at the big kitchen table, let's leave an empty plate, place setting and chair for those who have left us this year, either by natural causes, LODD, or a veteran of the armed forces from our city or town or department, who is not here any longer. If we have not lost a member or a retired member, then use it to remember our veterans who are deployed.
If we say never forget, use the empty chair as a reminder.
