Fire Angels

I walk past fire stations in New York with a bit of trepidation, especially those in lower Manhattan.  Many of their doors and walls are covered by tributes to those lost on 9/11.  It is heart-breaking and often overwhelming to see.

I came across my local station this past weekend.  Brightly painted, well-maintained, welcoming.  There was a window full of news articles detailing the brave actions taken by its members, and honoring those who have given their lives.

Posted right next to the door, the fire-angel mosaic reflects the hearts of the men and women inside.
