I remember when the firefighter visited our school. I wanted to be just like him, he stood up there so proud in his bright red fire suit with suspenders underneath. I thought it was so cool, so admirable that this man risked his life to save others. He told us the stories of how he had rescued a cat and put out a fire and I was just in awe. I couldn't stop staring as he talked and thought it must the best job ever. I ran home that night, eager to tell my parents all about what I had learned from the firefighter.
