"I can think of no more stirring symbol of man's humanity to man than a fire engine." ~Kurt Vonnegut
Imagine a fire engine showing up as your house is burning with your pets inside and the firefighters standing by to make sure your fire doesn't affect your neighbor's home. It is as impossible to imagine as it is true. Fire protection is no longer an emergency service that everyone in the community shares, but has become a service for fee. And in many places in the country, if you don't pay the fee, they won't save your house.

“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” –Antoine de Saint-Exupery
We believe we are making it better by shielding ourselves from our own pain. This is a fool’s errand, for the pain we refuse to feel and acknowledge doesn’t dissipate from our lacking attention, but rather collects in our heart center with a weightiness that we often cannot name or discern. So fearful are we, of the potential of a broken heart, that we inadvertently refuse to open our hearts at all.
