Dave you are an amazingly talented artist and you should be very proud of this song and video, what a tremendous tribute to the everyday heroes who don’t get thanked enough. I’ve watched the video a number of times and am deeply moved every time.
I owe my life to several firemen and EMTs as I was in a house fire when I was just 12 years old. By some miracle I got out of the house on my own but I was far out of danger as I suffered smoke inhalation and severe burns from the back draft explosion when the door was opened. There is no question that the care I received from the firemen and EMTs that cold winter night in 1976 saved my life and I will never forget them. I never got the opportunity to actually meet and thank my heroes, however, I hope that where ever they are today they hear this song and know in their hearts that the little girl in the house fire along with countless other people whose lives they saved are forever grateful.
Thanks Dave for honouring these heroes in such a wonderful way and for being the voice for all of us who have never gotten the chance to shake the hand of our hero and say THANK YOU.
