They Say

My grandma was saved in a terrible fire. She has instilled in me the belief that those who risk their lives should be thanked, even if they have not done anything to help me.

I couldn't say any word when i saw what these brave men do! I was impressed that these people don't do it for the money, they do it for the love for the profession.

Once the firefighters put down the fire in our house. I want to tell them Thank you for saving our lives and the house. I can't wait to be a firefighter when I grow up.
