    THE CREATION OF THE FIREFIGHTER


    When the Lord was creating Firefighters, he was into his sixth day of overtime when an angel appeared and said, "Your doing a lot of fiddling around on this one."

    And the Lord said "Have you read the specification on this person? Firefighters have to be able to go for hours fighting fires or tending to a person that the usual every day person would never touch, while putting in the back of their mind the circumstances. They have to be able to move at a seconds notice and not think twice of what they are about to do, no matter what the danger. They have to be in top physical condition at all times, running on half-eaten meals, and they must have six pairs of hands.

    The Angel shook her head slowly and said, "Six pair of hands... no way."

    "It's not the hands that are causing me the problems," said the Lord, "it's the three pairs of eyes a Firefighter has to have."

    "That's on the standard model?" asked the angel.

    The Lord nodded. "One pair that sees through the fire and where they and their fellow Firefighters should fight the fire next. Another pair here in the side of the head to see their fellow Firefighters and keep them safe. And another pair of eyes in the front so that they can look for the victims caught in the fire that need their help."

    "Lord" said the angel, touching his sleeve, "Rest and work on this tommorrow."

    "I can't" said the Lord, "I already have a model that can carry a 250 pound man down a flight of stairs and to safety from a burning building, and can feed a family of five on a civil service paycheck."

    The angel circled the model of the Firefighter very slowly, Can it think?"

    "You bet" said the Lord. "It can tell you the elements of a hundred fires; and can recite procedures in their sleep that are needed to care for a person until they reach the hospital. And all the while they have to keep their wits about themselves. This Firefighter also has phenomenal personal control. They can deal with a scene full of pain and hurt, coaxing a child's mother into letting go of the child so that they can care for the child in need. And still they rarely get the recongnition for a job well done from anybody, other than from fellow Firefighters."

    Finally, the angel bent over and ran her fingers across the cheek of the Firefighter. "There's a leak," she pronounced. "Lord it's a tear. What's the tear for?" asked the angel.

    "It's a tear from bottled-up emotions for fallen comrades. A tear for commitment to that funny piece of cloth called the American Flag. It's a tear for all the pain and suffering they have encountered. And it's a tear for their commitment to caring for and saving lives of their fellow man!"

    "What a wonderful feature Lord, you're a genious" said the angel.

    The Lord looked somber and said, "I didn't put it there."

    Well the day has come again when we at F.F.D. have lost another brother. David Sharp was friend and brother to all. We at the F.F.D. thank you for your thoughts and prayers. Please keep Davids family in your prayers as Davids wife is expecting their first child.

    As my wife and I were on our way to dinner you get that page to report to duty. All the way to the station you could only think about the fact that something tragic has happen. Only to find out that a brother has lost his life while on duty and to never return home again to his family.

    This night all C-shift personnel were to relieve our brothers that were on the scene. It was a long night to talk about what may have happened and I guess we will never know why David made the decision to cross those tracks.

    To my brothers and sisters of the F.F.D. talk to each other and stick together.

    And tell those people that you care about that you LOVE them, because you may never have that chance again. ToTheFamilyWeLoveYou

    I was shocked to read about David's death on the Net! I went to school with him in Southern Pines. I have many fond school memories of David. He was a good friend. I lost contact with him after graduation. I now live in New York. I am also currently a Vol. Firefighter/EMT here in N.Y. My heartfelt condolences go out to my fellow FF in Fayetteville and also to David's friends and family in Aberdeen.

    Theres nothing more heart breaking then to see one our brothers lost in the line of duty. to know that he will never return from his last alarm.
    I got the call form my station about David about 7:30 the night of the accident. When i got off the phone I just looked at my wife and told her how much i Love her and began to cry. Not for me but for Davids family.After working yesterday and taking about David with my brothers at work. Ive learned one thing and that David was a GREAT person. I didn't know David, but after yesterday I know David.
    To all of the F.F.D. you are in our prayers . Alos we in Cumberland County are there for you.All 22 station.
