    I am sure I speak on the behalf of the members of the Orrville, Ohio Fire Department and the members of The Ohio State University Police - Wooster Campus in extending hearfelt sympathy to the friends and families of our brothers who lost their lives in Memphis, TN today.

    Our thoughts and prayers go with you.

    Since i am not someone registered onto this website i
    thought it might be ok to send my message this way to
    where it says "Contact Us". First of all..i am a 16
    year old student that lives in Bartlett somewhere
    along Highway 70 and i just wanted to say my thoughts
    on this. i am sorry if i was wrong in doing this but i
    honestly didn't think it would hurt. ok...

    My heart goes out to all those who were hurt in this
    recent tragedy. It is disturbing to see that violence
    not only goes from school to schools across this
    country but it even is found in the servanthood of
    those who have chosen to protect and serve the poeple
    of their community. I don't know the majority opinion
    of my generation, but I do know that anyone can see
    that those in the Fire Department and the Police
    Department are the servants of the community and one
    can never understand why someone who takes an oath "to
    serve and protect" can turn on their fellow brethern
    in the servise that they are in. In 1 Thes 5:21 Paul
    says "But examine everything carefully; hold fast to
    that which is good." The character of those who
    dedicate their lives to service to the community does
    exactly this. Those who died in this tragedy held fast
    to that which was good and died in their
    service...their "line of duty" so thus i say they died
    with a hero's heart and memory. Not as one that shows
    as a martyr..but one of a servant who did what was
    right. It was a bad thing that happened to these
    people. The collegue that opened fired on his
    co-workers stood alone, so this doesn't mean that all
    those who serve this community are the same as him.
    His a ctions are not excused, but one must keep in
    perspective that those who protect and serve are good
    people. He was just one of the exceptions to that
    rule. I believe it was Oswald Chambers who said "It is
    one thing to go on the lonely way with dignified
    heroism, but quite another thing if the line mapped
    out for you by God means being a door-mat under other
    people's feet." Our servants that died in the line of
    duty became exactly as Mr. Chambers described and
    still remain with their title as "Undignified Heroes".
    I thank God for our firefighters and our police
    officiers. They follow a humble path of servanthood
    and set an example for the generation that watches
    them. I feel for the Memphis Fire Department and
    Police Department as well as for the families of these
    victims. They are in my thoughts and prayers. God be
    with you and grant you the peace to deal with what is
    now set before you.

    Sincerely,
    Cassandra Weaver

    My family and I would like to send our condolences
    to each family that lost a loved one today in this tragedy. It is truly a sad
    day in Memphis. I wish we didn't have guns in this world but I know that will
    never be. There are reports that the rifle he used was a high powered rifle so
    he meant to shoot to kill.
    Once again all of the families will be in our prayers. May the families
    find peace somehow someway.

    Subject: The Tragedy In Memphis, TN
    To: webteam@firehouse.com

    I wish to extend my condolences to the family of my coworker ("The Deputy")
    for the Shelby County Sheriff's Office, and the family of my brothers for
    the Memphis Fire Department. I was at work when I heard the news. I
    couldn't believe what I had heard. My heart stopped for a moment. Words
    can't describe what we are feeling in Memphis. Now I must continue to be
    strong for my family. As I read the e-mails I just wanted to thank you all
    for your condolences for our falling family member.

    Unhappy

    I would like to send my condolences to the families and friends of the fallen fire- fighters and deputy in Memphis, TN. This is a tragedy to everyone. It is hard to believe that this could happen. This is something that you really don't think about when you consider 'Scene Safety' when responding to a house fire. Memphis Fire and the County Sheriff's deptments are in my thoughts and prayers through this tough time.

    Madness...utter madness. I'm sitting here watching local coverage of the horror that has unfolded in my hometown of Memphis, TN. Tears are streaming down my face. 2 firefighters & 1 sheriff's deputy dead...all trying to perform their often-thankless tasks of protecting & serving the public. I grieve for these heroes, for they allow me to live in safety & comfort while they put their lives on the line EVERY DAY. I am forever in their debt.
    There are simply no rules anymore. Why do people hellbent on their own self-destruction have to turn their anger outward to innocent victims? How many more times do incidents like these have to happen before this country enacts sweeping gun-control measures? It's being proven over & over again: there is simply no way to make guns available to the general public & expect it to act responsibly. Access to firearms should be limited solely to the military & the police.

    I am outraged that we lose brother firefighters to such a useless thing. I can only say that it is ashamed that the police did not kill the so called "suspect"

    Our hearts and prayers go out to the Memphis Fire Department, the families of the fallen brothers and the rest of those afffected.

    We will be with you over the next few weeks as your try to recover and grieve your losses.
