God Bless All Of Our First Responders – Empowered HEROES!

Devastating news today out of Arizona.  An ENTIRE CREW of an elite group known as, “The Hot Shot Crew” were killed fighting a MASSIVE out of control wildfire.

Called one of the worst natural disasters in decades and also the greatest loss of firefighters since 9/11.  You can read more details here – and also find out ways you (and your kids) can help and make a difference.  This can help empower you as a parent and help empower your kids.

 

And here’s what’s even more important.

As your day is filled with your ‘normal’ busy-ness and routine – please take time to remember these firefighters – and especially their families and children left now to deal with their loss.  Please remember to pray for them – and be grateful of all the blessings in your life —  more importantly, hug your kids, spend time with them…  and then find a first responder… and THANK THEM.

 

The Firefighter’s Prayer

When I’m called to duty God
wherever flames may rage
give me strength to save a life
whatever be its age

Help me to embrace a little child
before it is too late
or save an older person from
the horror of that fate

Enable me to be alert
to hear the weakest shout
and quickly and efficiently
to put the fire out

I want to fill my calling and
to give the best in me
to guard my neighbor and
protect his property

And if according to your will
I have to lose my life
bless with your protecting hand
my children and my wife
