Wish[ing] out loud...

I was told about this really amazing link-up last week and I couldn't wait until today to do it! Its called Wish out loud. Its hosted by -fly far. fly free. If I could make any wish and my wishes would come true I think I would wish for illegal guns off the streets and out of the hands of criminals. I feel like that is very unrealistic so I will wish for the safety of the police and emergency service workers when they respond to calls that involve violence.

I am a firefighter and personally it is more scary to respond to a domestic dispute then it is to respond to a fire. I know what to do and how to handle the fire safely but you never know about the guy hiding in the corner mad at his wife with a gun. Or the young teen upset about being bullied on facebook who has a knife and wants to hurt all those mean people.



  1. Wow. I really do forget that you don't just fight fires. A huge thank you for serving and protecting us. My friend's brother was a police officer who died recently after responding to a domestic and then being shot by a man. So sad and so preventable. Thank you again. :) Found you through the wish out loud link up.

  2. It is awful & totally preventable! One of the scariest parts of the job is going into a situation where you dont know what the outcome may be! Its my pleasure! I love my job & thank YOU for reading!

  3. Wow, that is really scary!! You are one brave woman! :)
