Baby surrendered to firefighters

Men sometimes get a bad rap.

Sometimes they are called distant. Sometimes they seem angry.

I was just thinking of this as I read a CNN story about a woman who surrendered her newborn baby to firefighters, who I believe to be males, at a Los Angeles fire station. They named the baby "Noel" and made sure she got to a hospital and received medical attention.

Across our country, loving and brave men man our fire stations. They stand ready to rescue the elderly from flames, respond to accidents, and take in the most vulnerable - newborn infants.

Raise up your holiday toasts to the brave people who man fire stations around our nation.

These folks are doing great work. We rely on them in crisis and we trust them with the most vulnerable among us.
