Everyday Heroes is such a true statement, and I have a best friend that is the president of the Enfield Volunteer fire dept. The stories he shared with me and acts of heroism of his fellow first responders lead me to ask one question. Why? Why would you want to put your self in harms way, or experience the sight and sounds of others suffering. His reply was to give hope and make a difference. And as I was about to ask what he gets out of it he says. ” No drug or substance in the world can give you the spiritual warmth in side your heart when you accomplish the task of saving lives. Not always successful but with training and the ability we do make a difference. I salute you John Mettam, if my health had been different I would likely stand along side with you.
I am proud of you all, and I salute you all.
