In Phoenix , Arizona , a 26-year-old mother stared down


at her 6 year old son, who was dying of leukemia.Although her heart was filled with sadness,she also had a strong feeling of determinationLike any mother, she wanted her son to grow up &fulfill all his dreams. Now that was no longer possible..The leukemia would see to that. But she stillwanted her son’s dream to come true.She took her son’ s hand and asked,‘Billy, did you ever think about what you wantedto be once you grew up?Did you ever dream and wish about what you woulddo with your life?’Mommy, ‘I always wanted to be a firemanwhen I grew up.’Mom smiled back and said, ‘Let’s see if we canmake your wish come true.’Later that day she went to her local fireDepartment in Phoenix , Arizona , where she metFireman Bob, who had! a heart as big as Phoenix She explained her son’s final wish andasked if it might be possible to give her 6 year-old
son a ride around the block on a fire engineFireman Bob said, ‘Look, we can dobetter than that. If you’ll have your son ready at7 o’clock Wednesday morning, we’ll makehim an honorary Fireman for the whole day.He can come down to the fire station, eat with us,go out on all the fire calls, the whole nine yards! And if you’ll give us his sizes, we’ll get a real fire uniformfor him, with a real fire hat - not a toy — one-with the emblem
of the Phoenix Fire Department on it, a yellow slicker like
we wear, and rubber boots.’‘They’re all manufactured right here in Phoenix ,so we can get them fast.’ Three days later Fireman Bob picked up Billy,dressed him in his uniform and escorted him from his hospital
bed to the waiting hook and ladder truck.Billy got to sit on the back of the truckand help steer it back to the fire station.He was in heaven.There were three fire calls in Phoenix that dayand Billy got to go out on all three calls.He rode in the different fire engines,the Paramedic’s’ van,and even the fire chief’s car.He was also videotaped for thelocal news program.Having his dream come true,with all the love and attention that was lavished upon him,
so deeply touched Billy, that he lived three months longer
than any doctor thought possible.One night all of his vital signs began todrop dramatically and the head nurse, who believedin the hospice concept - that no one should die alone,
began to call the family members to the hospital.Then she remembered the day Billy had spentas a Fireman, so she called the Fire Chief andasked if it would be possible to send a firemanin uniform to the hospital to be with Billy as he
made his transition.The chief replied, “We can do better than that.We’ll be there in five minutes.. Will you please do me a favor?When you hear the sirens screaming and see thelights flashing, will you announce over thePA system at the hospital that there is not a fire?”‘It’s the department coming to see one of its finest members
one more time. And will you open the window to his room?’About five minutes later a hook and ladder truck arrived
at the hospital and extended its ladder up to Billy’s third floor
open window 16 fire-fighters climbed up the ladder into Billy’s
room.With his mother’s permission, they hugged him and held
him and told him how much they LOVED him.

With his dying breath, Billy looked up at the fire chief and said,‘Chief, am I really a fireman now?’‘Billy, you are, and The Head Chief, Jesus,
is holding your hand,’ the chief said.With those words, Billy smiled and said,‘I know, He’s been holding my hand all day, and the angels have been singing..’He closed his eyes one last time.


Fucking crying mess at work, THANKS GUYS.

In Phoenix , Arizona , a 26-year-old mother stared down

at her 6 year old son, who was dying of leukemia.

Although her heart was filled with sadness,

she also had a strong feeling of determination
Like any mother, she wanted her son to grow up &
fulfill all his dreams. Now that was no longer possible..

The leukemia would see to that. But she still
wanted her son’s dream to come true.

She took her son’ s hand and asked,
‘Billy, did you ever think about what you wanted
to be once you grew up?
Did you ever dream and wish about what you would
do with your life?’

Mommy, ‘I always wanted to be a fireman
when I grew up.’

Mom smiled back and said, ‘Let’s see if we can
make your wish come true.’

Later that day she went to her local fire
Department in Phoenix , Arizona , where she met
Fireman Bob, who had! a heart as big as Phoenix 

She explained her son’s final wish and
asked if it might be possible to give her 6 year-old

son a ride around the block on a fire engine

Fireman Bob said, ‘Look, we can do
better than that. If you’ll have your son ready at
7 o’clock Wednesday morning, we’ll make
him an honorary Fireman for the whole day.
He can come down to the fire station, eat with us,
go out on all the fire calls, the whole nine yards! 

And if you’ll give us his sizes, we’ll get a real fire uniform
for him, with a real fire hat - not a toy — one-with the emblem

of the Phoenix Fire Department on it, a yellow slicker like

we wear, and rubber boots.’

‘They’re all manufactured right here in Phoenix ,
so we can get them fast.’ 


Three days later Fireman Bob picked up Billy,
dressed him in his uniform and escorted him from his hospital

bed to the waiting hook and ladder truck.

Billy got to sit on the back of the truck
and help steer it back to the fire station.
He was in heaven.

There were three fire calls in Phoenix that day
and Billy got to go out on all three calls.

He rode in the different fire engines,
the Paramedic’s’ van,
and even the fire chief’s car.

He was also videotaped for the
local news program.

Having his dream come true,
with all the love and attention that was lavished upon him,

so deeply touched Billy, that he lived three months longer

than any doctor thought possible.

One night all of his vital signs began to
drop dramatically and the head nurse, who believed
in the hospice concept - that no one should die alone,

began to call the family members to the hospital.

Then she remembered the day Billy had spent
as a Fireman, so she called the Fire Chief and
asked if it would be possible to send a fireman
in uniform to the hospital to be with Billy as he

made his transition.

The chief replied, “We can do better than that.
We’ll be there in five minutes.. Will you please do me a favor?

When you hear the sirens screaming and see the
lights flashing, will you announce over the
PA system at the hospital that there is not a fire?”

‘It’s the department coming to see one of its finest members

one more time. And will you open the window to his room?’

About five minutes later a hook and ladder truck arrived

at the hospital and extended its ladder up to Billy’s third floor

open window 16 fire-fighters climbed up the ladder into Billy’s

room.

With his mother’s permission, they hugged him and held

him and told him how much they LOVED him.

With his dying breath, Billy looked up at the fire chief and said,

‘Chief, am I really a fireman now?’

‘Billy, you are, and The Head Chief, Jesus,

is holding your hand,’ the chief said.

With those words, Billy smiled and said,
‘I know, He’s been holding my hand all day, and 
the angels have been singing..’

He closed his eyes one last time.

Drastic Changes

I recently found out that two people That I truly care about lost their jobs. They have been my mentors and support structure as I have grown for the last 7 years. I never thought their jobs were at risk. It didn’t even had to do with money, it was just something they thought was right. I have exhausted my energy fighting for their jobs and positions. They have given up so much for this organization and their presence is irreplaceable. It never hurt me so much to see them in that state when they informed me. I can’t imagine coming into work and on a random day I am told I no longer have a job. It has just hurt me for the last week. I have accepted the change but I just can’t believe it’s happening after over 10 years of their hard work. I just wanna give someone a huge hug. And most of all I want them to have a job. I don’t know what to do anymore. I’ve done everything I could!! I’m broken. They’re broken. And were all going to be really broken when they do leave. It was a stab through our heart. We all thought the two of them meant something to the department. My pandora radio station is the only place I can find any comfort and solitude. What would I do without pandora as I lay here in bed thinking about the future? Goodnight world. You’re harsh out there.
