Enjoy

I just wanted to say a few words .My brother belongs to an elite rescue squad in the FDNY.You may have heard about the crane accident that happened.Me i worked with that company many times and sorry to say I knew the man that was in the operators chair.God rest his soul . 3years from retirement he was.My brother was on the pile with his fellow FDNY firefighter brothers when they found the one guy under the rubble.Hand by hand they formed the "bucket "brigade .they dug the guy out he was obviously traumatized when they put an iv in he ripped it out.My brother was there when the guy who they are trying to save says "my girl is behind me "They see nothing but rubble.So they keep digging with bare hands when the order comes down.STOP ALL EFFORTS ,THE PILE IS SHIFTING EVERYONE GET OUT.My brother was heartbroken when he finally called me back.Him and his brothers wanted to keep digging but they were pulled off the job.When i spoke with him ,his normal stoic manner was not there .he was very upset that he and his brothers couldnt continue to try and save that women.Word comes down today the found her ,dead.The guys took it personally even though they were ordered to stop for their own safety.Life is short ,grab the ones around you that mean the most let em know how important they are.Call that friend/family member your PO'd at and end it .Cuz you never know tomorrow might be the last day you walk out the door and you dont come home.

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Very well said. Life can sometimes be shorter than expected.

joel, your message really brought back memories. On April 8th, 2000 my brother took his own life. He was deer hunter and fisherman. I miss him. I highly endorse your message!
