Susan Whitmore, CEO, Meets With Fire Fighters
A Day That Changed My Life (Yet Once Again)

I was asked by Captain Bob Bates to come to the fire station and talk about
griefHaven. He said, "We need you...we need to know about your organization
and what you do." So I went armed with documents, grief pins, and other bits
of information to share with them. But what started out as a sharing about
griefHaven turned into a grief sharing from the firefighters about their own
PTSD, their own trauma and grief over all that they have experienced over
the many years they have fought fires, tried to save lives, walked into
homes where people have died--where children have died, tried to console
families, worked untold hours for the betterment of our communities, and so
much more...

Most of us have no idea what firefighters do for us. We think they simply
put out fires. Or perhaps, once in a while, they show up when a medic is
needed. That is not the case. They are asked to be there for a huge number
of crises, and they have their own grief and gut-wrenching pain that they
have to learn to live with.

Fire Station 69. You amaze me! What you have chosen to do with your lives
equals a lifetime of those who choose to protect our country, with all of
the same, both good and bad, experiences that you have to learn to live
with. I pray that we can be there for you in your time of need, for as you
give, so too do you need to receive.

Here are the photos of this day today, January 16, 2017, that changed my
life once again.


I love you guys!!!
