Yes this was me, fightin' fires and saving lives and property.
Part of the time I was just a kid, drinking with the boys, raising
hell and acting like a spoiled brat.
While I couldn't see it at the time, looking back there I was
full of pride, ego and fear all rolled into one.
I almost lost the one career I was good at.
Never good at any trade, hating college, I
finally found my niche. Here was a job with
forcible entry, rescue and fire suppression.
No degree required, or finesse.
Thankfully I was always able to get help
when I needed it.
I'm told to not regret the past; and I can
do that today. All my experiences good & bad
led me to where I am now...
clean, serene and content.
