We're only here for a little while.
Each day someone from each side(s) calls or writes me, pissed off at the world over all the debates in the fire service. Passion, tradition, pride, education, frustration, etc. it all comes to a head. I don't have all the answers and am very, very, very far from being a solution but the past has taught me that time is short. Make your time meaningful in your own way.
Keep it simple
