It's all good Mike but "After Further Review" the Cubs still stink. Not only did they get swept for the second playoffs in a row but I'm surrounded by White Sox fans. And need less to day I'm taking a beating. Anybody can have a bad century, right? How's the officers clasess going?

Please allow me to invite you to a site designed by responders for responders... the crew that is doing it is CISM multilevel trained and are there for the guys after the bad calls. It helps the responders that do not yet have a team or would be worried that they asking for help would be seen as weakness. Please join and share it when you can. As a chaplain with over 25 years of service to fire departments I am excited with it's potential to provide support.
