I tweaked the blog post I wrote about ‘A Girl Firefighter’ and submitted it to our local newspaper.
Admittedly, they will print pretty much anything one submits, I think, but still, it’s cool to see my name on the byline.
Hopefully a few more people will read it in print, and maybe the local fire services will see a few new faces as folks learn a bit more about what it takes to volunteer. Maybe a few more people will find that they’ve got something to offer and decide to give it a shot.
And, most of all, maybe “the girls” will get some more respect from the community … they have earned it!
