> Everybody is saying that those fire fighters in New York are heros. No question about it. I saw video of one of them climbing down through a mass of twisted steel looking for survivors. Others are in the hospital, or dead. They seem to have the stuff that heros are made of. Not just a few of them, and it's not just in New York, either. Fire fighters everywhere are a special breed. I just hope somebody will remember that the next time they negotiate a contract. Maybe they can include more than a 2% raise.

The article I link to below is proof that firefighters do go above and beyond the call of duty. Although these firefighters live 3,000 miles away from New York, they couldn't stand by and do nothing. Instead, they took to the streets of California's capitol and, within two days, had raised over $500,000 for the families of the firefighters killed in New York.
