Even though this was 20 years ago it is still inspiring to see the people that survived and served us in a time that we needed them the most.

The lesson in the passage is when someone runs someone different will come and help. The message is that having courage is not bad, it is good. I picked this billboard because it gives me courage to stand up for others and myself. When I read these words I get inspired.

As a retired professional firefighter, this means the world to me. All firefighters risk their lives for others for little pay and less notoriety. Thanks for noticing.
