A POLITICIAN TO BE PROUD OF

This post is to pay respect to Jack Layton, a politician who truly cared and hoped to make a better world. No Canadian politician has ever borne physical suffering as publicly as Jack Layton bore his, which is one reason for the very public mourning at his death. “Mr. Layton did not spring fully formed into…

WHAT WAS NECESSARY THERE IS UNACCEPTABLE HERE.

People,



I am having trouble conforming to the medical procedures I have been trained to use as an EMT-B.

I suppose I have…

I AM.. YOU ARE ... HE, SHE OR IT IS

I am a "man", ( a human being, a person, a member of the human race).

I have a presence, beliefs and possibly a soul (spirit). I am responsible for my words..actions and thoughts and must be mindful of the needs of my "family" ( everyone else). I must understand that I am not alone and so I must take responsibility for everything in this life without hesitation as it is a fact that together we prevail.... divided we fail.

To understand that everything I do, think and say will…

THE BEST, TRUE AND LOVING NATURE OF HUMAN BEINGS

Two Canadian girls die in a house fire in Surrey British Columbia and a Surrey Firefighter is burned over 30 percent of his body trying to save them. This Firefighter is a true and noble example of the dedication, determination and selflessness of the followers of the Knights of Saint John.


I am sad to know the girls died but I know it was not from a lack of trying on the part of all who attempted to rescue them.


We all need to be…

hanging on his chain next to his dog tags. He knows he may not see

some of his buddies again.



You walk down the beach, staring at all

UNITED WE STAND .....DIVIDED WE FALL

Fear and hate are, have been and always will be the "mind killers" that will consume all who choose to act before they think.

 

For every "right" that is afforded to any people under any social structure there are enormous responsibilities and duties that must be undertaken by everyone. No one has any "rights" unless they earn them.
America today is full of people who declare they have the…

BROTHERS FROM THE RISING SUN

In the current times of economic, social and political discord that divides us all, I have noticed that there is a commonality in tradition and protocol around the world in the Fire Service.
