Yesterday, a couple of us were on the 210 freeway trying to make it home through the traffic. On the opposite side from a distance we could see the blaring red lights of fire trucks coming our way. An endless line passed us by…fire trucks coming from all over the state…Long Beach, Arcadia, Redding, some even from San Francisco. Who knows how long these men had been on the road and how many more hours they would be awake working to save lives and property. The “brotherhood” of these firemen…reaching out to help each other in time of need, risking their lives doing what has been entrusted to them…made quite an impact on us as we watched them drive by. And it strengthened our own resolve to be faithful to what’s been entrusted to us individually and communally…to let the “sisterhood” be a living reflection of the oneness to which we are called. God bless and reward our firemen!
