It is easy to be brave from a safe distance. (2 Photos)

While attending the Public Safety Committee meeting held at Fire Station 1 this evening; a call came in. The firefighters quickly and quietly and professionally suited up and were on their way. As their truck pulled out of its bay, I could ...not help but notice what the firefighters left behind ... their shoes ... precisely where they took them off ... waiting to be filled by their respective wearers upon their return. It was a particularly poignant and touching image/moment that the photojournalist in me could not pass up ... and given the events of a day earlier when 19 heroic firefighters perished battled a windblown wildfire in Arizona, I could not help but think that somewhere in Arizona, 19 sets of shoes are (similarly) sitting empty; never to be filled again. We are blessed here in Lakewood (and across this nation and across the world) to be served by dedicated men and women who protect us; people who boldly and knowingly run toward danger.
