Death of an innocent

One of my student workers just called me to let me know he wouldn't be into work tomorrow because he was in jail for DUI and bemoaning the fact his car was sized and he would probably lose his license (obviously must not be his first DUI) and all the money he would have to spend in court costs, attorney fees and bail. Not once did he express remorse for what he did and some thankfulness that he didn't cause an accident where someone was hurt or lost their life because of him. All he could… Continue

The Last Alarm

My father was a fireman, he drove a big red truck

And when he'd go to work each day he'd say "Mother, wish me luck"

Then dad would not come home again until sometime the next day

But the thing that bothered me the most was the things some folks would say

A fireman's life is easy, he eats and sleeps and plays,

and sometimes he won't fight a fire for many, many days

When I first heard these words I was young to understand

But I knew when people had trouble Dad… Continue

EMT Prayer


Grant me the wisdom so that I may treat

those of your children that lay at my feet.

Let my hands be gentle, sure and swift

to impart to them your sacred gift.

Let me see only a patient's need

not their color, race or creed.

Help me always to be my best

even when it's on my hours rest.

Grant me the insight to understand why

patients of mine are going to die.

Let me remember that when they do

there is a wonderful… Continue

Fire Fighters Who Love Hockey

A hockey buddy and fellow EMT of mine from up in White Horse sent this to me and I knew I had to pass it on to my FFN friends, although.......Complete Psycho??? I think maybe that's stretching it a bit, lol. Take care and be safe.

Which One Are You?

It's a well-known fact that there are only two seasons in Canada: summer and hockey. According to long-standing tradition, the former starts with the hoisting of the Stanley Cup, as fans in an American city… Continue

Is it a jellyfish bad day?

This is even funnier when you realize it's real! Next time you have a bad day at work, think of this guy.

Rob is a commercial saturation diver for Global Divers in Louisiana. He performs underwater repairs on offshore drilling rigs. Below is an E-mail he sent to his sister.

She then sent it to radio station 103.2 on FM dial in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, who was sponsoring a worst job experience contest. Needless to say, she won.

Hi Sue,

Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life, and when it comes, hold your head high. Look it squarely in the eye, and say, "I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me." It is surmounting difficulties that make heroes.

Life's Little Reminders

The journey has always been about laughing together, loving each other, seeking adventure, believing in our dreams and making a difference.....but sometimes we forget.

In the game of life it's a good idea to have a few early losses, which relieves you of the pressure of trying to maintain an undefeated season.

I Believe

I believe... I will never be the woman that can wear white and not spill on it, that ice tea and popcorn count as a well rounded meal... That you can love the smell of coffee, even when you won't drink it... That when in doubt, classic is the way to go... I believe that smiling is the most attractive quality a person can have... That summer is by far the best season... That laughing is the best stomach workout... That bunny boots can be sexy... That feeling guilty is a bad habit, similar to… Continue
