It comes with the job description; firefighters don’t get nights or weekends off. They are always there. Thanksgiving is no different.
Maribeth Boelt’s tribute walks us through the daily work and emergency calls that make a Thanksgiving at home a rarity for firefighters. The book is a noble gesture that served well in my class as the launching point to making thank you cards for local firefighters.
With nominal effort one could turn it into cards for the local police or those in the armed forces who share a firefighter’s fate on Thanksgiving.
