Would you answer the call?

They called her a hero,
But she said she was just doing her job.
Was it her job she was doing?
Or was it her calling?

They called her a hero,
Was she ready for it?
This is what happens,
when you walk the path of the hero.
Whether she was ready for it or not.
Whether she went to it or not.
It came to her.
And she answered the call.

She said she was scared.
Would you be?

She answered the call.
Could you?

Hug a firefighter or EMS tech today.

It's more than a job to these people.
It's who they are.
It's what they do, not because they have to, because they want to.

And it's a good thing they are here. Don't overlook them.

Tell them thank you, or wave as you see them passing.
They don't do it for the recognition, but that doesn't mean they don't deserve it.
