Pausing to Remember

Greater love hath no man...

On August 30, two Los Angeles County firefighters died while battling the Station Fire. Their emergency response vehicle went off-road and plunged into a canyon, killing them both.

To them, it was just another workday. But during this particular shift, they were called upon to sacrifice their lives in the line of duty. On this Labor Day, it is right to remember the public servants who routinely place their lives on the line as part of their jobs, to keep us safe from harm.
