    Default What "da job" is all about...

    This fireman cartoon was done by the son of one of the Crusties based on a post I made on the IACOJ forums... it sums up what "da job" is all about...

    I know that firefighter...I think he moonlights doing the broadcasts for the National Weather Service.

    We could replace that fireman with any person who works in this country. Yet the ungrateful still want more from all of us.

    That was made for firefighters...the same can be said for law enforcement personnel and EMS... not anyone else.

    Just walk into any Burger King, DMV, or the local "Stop 'n Rob" and you will see that is not true.

    Sorry, every worker in America claims "We, the unwilling, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing. "
    And that is what I am talking about.

    So you agree with Capt? The cartoon does not apply to everyone. This job is not about gratitude. It is about service and doing what is right, doing the greater good.
    The leaders I follow have great knowledge, and wisdom. Because of that I too have great knowledge and strive towards wisdom. I follow them willingly with confidence and pride, knowing the path I walk is the higher road.
    My faith is unshakable, and my mission is unwavering.
    Very simple.
