LotzOthoughtz – Firemen:

There is something fascinating about Firemen. Part of it, I think, is that they go against instinct. Animals are hardwired to run from fire, be it in a fire pit or on our house. You still see this unknown fear in most non-human animals. It is so alien from everything else in the world, it is so hot and unpredictable who can blame animals for being instinctively fearful of it. But Firemen, they learn to compartmentalize this fear-a difficult thing to do. I don’t think they get rid of the fear completely, that would be folly. If they had no fear there would be no sense of urgency, no sense of “have to save people now”, they might even just stand there and stare at it if they had no fear of it.

This is a posting I found on a local blog. I thought some of you might enjoy it. You can find the entire post (HERE).
