I was driving into work, noticing there were firemen on each side of the street. I wondered what there were doing, then I saw a sign to “Fill the Boot”, a donation campaign to fund fireman programs. At first, I felt sad that I saw them out there trying to get donations from people. Then I got angry that these are the same people who risk their own lives to keep us safe. These are the guys who throw caution the in the wind and run into burning buildings.
It frustrates me when I seen rich athletes and movie stars walking around, not a care in the world, while our saviours are on the streets looking for handouts. I understand that they signed up for it knowing there wasn’t much money in it but there has to be a better way to help fund this important aspect of our society. If you see these fearless men out today please help them out, cause apparently our government isn’t it.
