Last week, 19 members of an elite, Arizona-based firefighting-team, lost their lives battling a lightning-sparked-wildfire, caught in what's termed, a "burn-over," caused when the wind, and with it, the flames, abruptly shift, in this case, suddenly engulfing them, cutting off their escape route. A stunning tragedy, not only in loss of life for those highly-skilled firefighters, but because so many left wives and young families behind. Understandably, children have always been fascinated by those gleaming fire trucks, speeding out of the neighborhood fire-house, sirens blaring, with the obligatory Dalmatian perched on top. In the grown-up world, being a firefighter isn't that childhood fantasy, but the stark-reality of an extremely demanding and dangerous profession. Whether full-time or volunteer, it's the firefighters who put life and limb on-the-line to save property and people, whenever called, no matter the weather, time-of-day, or degree-of-risk. They are the ones who race into burning structures, when those inside are racing to get out! Starkest case-in-point, the over 300 firefighter-fatalities following their heroic World Trade Center efforts, after the appalling 9/11 Attack-on-America, by despicable, murdering Islamic radicals.
