Firefighters ~ Our Heroes

Here's the card I made to thank the firefighters who tried their best to save our home. Those guys (and gal) and truly heroes in our eyes...when I heard that our staircase was already destroyed when they arrived, and yet they tried to be sure no one was sleeping upstairs...when I heard they tried to rescue my photo albums...when they asked me what items were most valuable to me and tried (in vain) to locate them for me....when they apologized for not being able to save our home....when I heard they are volunteers who receive next to nothing in compensation for risking their lives for total strangers....I was (and still am) totally in awe.

Thanks to everyone who responded to my RAK request for the firefighters.
