Not Alone is an organization that helps warriors and families reintegrate back into the civilian world after war. This year, they created an event downtown honoring warriors, policemen, firefighters and first responders.
All of these people put themselves into gruesome situations to guard our lives and our freedoms. It’s easy to forget they must live with a lot of memories of times when life wasn’t fair. And they have to suck it up and keep going, no matter what they’ve seen and experienced.
You can tell this guy, a Nashville firefighter, has seen his share of tough situations–but they’ve only made him stronger. Today, I salute his strength and the strength of all those others who put their lives on the line every day safeguarding us and our freedoms.
