In Russia, the fire guys are a lot like their American cousins. After all, they face the same dangers and the same situations, without exception. Some years ago, I posted about a hero-fireman in Moscow who died in the course of his duties. He was a colonel, with no need of being out on the line. However, he went out with the bros, because that’s the sort of guy he was. He died because the floor collapsed from under him (Patriarch Kirill served Pannikhida for him). That’s why NOBODY dislikes firemen. They put their lives on the line every day and they hurt no one… indeed, their job is to save lives, not take them. If I had to choose between a lawyer, a politician, a salesman, a media pundit, or a fireman as the sort that society needs, I’d pick the fireman and shitcan the rest. I do daresay that I wouldn’t be alone…
