Each morning when I get up for work, I am not quite sure what the day will bring. The beauty of working in the newspaper business is that each day has the potential to be a new adventure. Not every profession offers the opportunity for variance each and every day, so I am thankful to have a job that keeps me on my toes.
First-responders also have jobs which vary from day to day. Sometimes the day brings an exciting turn of events, other times a day can bring tragedy. This past Friday was one of those circumstances where tragedy struck in the most unforeseen of ways.
