I’m just getting around to posting these photo and this is my favorite from the evening. Not only did my Son graduated from firefighter school they also prayed, which was so moving. Prayer has been removed from so many things in our lives that I shed a few tears I was so inspired.
The firefighters organized their own ceremony and a potluck dinner for all the families invited to attend. As you can see there’s a wide range of age amongst the graduates and they all have their own reason for becoming a firefighter. Until my son made the choice I had no idea how much training and schooling was involved. Call me stupid but it’s not only about putting water on a fire, but I was completely naive untill now.
Every one of them has a full time job as well as attended school full time to fulfill their dreams. Next step is EMT school which will take place this fall. It was amazing to see how they all worked as a team, encouraged one another, studied together, and pulled each other up when it was needed. I guess that’s what it’s all about, becoming part of a family and working together to fight a fire. There truly is a brotherhood amongst those that serve. The above photo is my son accepting his graduation certificate.
