Remember this little line from Clarence the angel in It's a Wonderful Life?
"Strange, isn't it? Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?"
I saw this on TV tonight, and it put me in mind of that:
Now, I can't claim to have helped anyone as dramatically as a firefighter. Teaching just doesn't require the same kind of heroism. I hope I have been able to have some positive effect in the lives of others. I'm certainly glad I had the opportunity.
I have to say, that I am pleased that they chose a female firefighter as the central character in this ad.
