First you got to look and learn from history because MOST of the answers are there and that is why society spends so much time on it.
So you have a town. Not everyone in that town likes each other. Matter of fact some hate others. It's human nature. Give me ANY town of several hundred or several thousand and that is the case 100% of the time. Go watch "Lord of the flies" and understand yourself and society and how it unfolds the same way EVERY time.
Our industry is a town.
With certain things there is a "Common Cause".
So what that means is that even people who don't see eye to eye can agree that a Fire Department is in the best interest of everyone.
They can agree that the area needs policing to protect their valuables even if they are not crazy about each other.
They agree they need a hospital if somebody gets sick even if they are not crazy about each other..
So there are common causes that trump all the bullshit.
I am just saying get involved. It does not have to be thru me or my way. You can do it yourself. You can do it from RDNH.com you can do it thru any vehicle you like. But are you really going to just sit there when there is a real window of opportunity to stop something that may eventually bite you in the ass? Start your own fire department. The more the better. Right NOW we have the upper hand on a fire raging for 15 years. I truly believe in my heart we can reduce this practice by 95%. I see that chance. It's a common cause.
This WILL go mainstream. Guaranteed! We have already done enough to accomplish the mission. But we can't stop until the fire is out.
Many of you have done a really wonderful job of helping and supporting and thank all of you for that. You have been terrific. Incredible in fact. Taken on the burden of all those on the sidelines and not a one of them even appreciate the hard work YOU GUYS have done. Well I REALLY appreciate it. You folks have defined yourselves in a very good and gracious manner. A seed has been planted and a satellite launched. And you can all be very proud when we see a RESULT for our efforts you will know in your heart that you DID make a difference.
If you SHAME them they will STOP their SHAMEFUL behavior.
Have a GREAT Day!
