I didn't take this photo but it melts my heart because it shows the rawness of what it means to have a few moments to yourself when you're a firefighter.
Tomorrow Matt & 14 of his fellow recruits are going to participate in the 9/11 Stair Climb where they'll climb the equivalent of 110 flights of stairs to honor the 343 fallen firefighters from that day. His passion, respect & humbleness astound me everyday. "If it is important to you, you'll find a way. If it's not important to you, you'll keep making excuses." #firefighter #thinredline #FDIC
