A Hero Died Today

by | Nov 13, 2019 | Opinion

So I was just reading about this gentleman who died a hero today at the age of 39.

Acting on reports that a woman and her baby were trapped on the third floor of a home, he and his fellow firefighters became trapped.

Lt. Menard helped a probationary firefighter make his way to stairs and out of the home, and then returned to help another firefighter out a window.

At that point, he became overcome by flames.

Lt. Menard was to leave for a trip to Disney World with his wife and 3 children hours later.

A family that would have in this moment been at ‘The Happiest Place On Earth’, are now planning a funeral.

The world is incredibly unfair sometimes.
