I'm pretty sure the paycheck keeps him in his job that not too many are willing to do. I have great honor for these workers, and for the firemen and women, and the police and for those taking care of the roads in the heat of summer and in the dead of winter. For all those who risk their lives on a daily basis to keep our world safe. Especially our Armed Forces! Congratulations on your deserving Second Place with this thought provoking poem Gary. Excellent work! : ) xxoo
