Pressure! It can be good and it can be bad. It all depends upon the amount applied and when. The amazing thing about pressure is that the right amount can turn a piece of coal into diamond.

Author's note: On July 22, 2005 my family and I were involved in a very serious auto accident in Jacksonville, Florida that left me with two fractured cervical vertebrae. I want to say thank you to the members of Jacksonville Fire Rescue as they rallied around me and provided for my family during this difficult time. In particular I want to say thank you to Chief Larry Peterson, Captain Nick Tison, and Firefighter Brian Ross. I also want to thank the many individuals who sent me "get well" emails from around the world. This incident has reminded me why I am proud to call myself a firefighter and be associated with such an honorable profession.
