Memorial Service Program:
Channel 3 may be the best way to view - I expect AzCentral to be overwhelmed. There may be other links showing it live, also.
Channel 3 has interviewed fire fighters from Canada and LA. Some are coming from Australia.
Prelude: “On Eagle’s Wings,” Greater Arizona Congress Choir.
Procession: Prescott Fire Department Honor Guard, PFD Combined Fire, Emergency Services and Military Honor Guard, All Uniformed Fire Fighters and Emergency Responders
Did Biden invite himself?
Watching it live I think — is anyone listening to Biden make this whole damn thing about himself?
‘s obvious that there was an effort to give the memorial a secular twist. But then men of faith showed up and stood up to speak in terms of Scripture that permeated the lives of these fallen firefighters. The Spirit of the Lord floated over that memorial I don’t think anyone can dispute that.
Thanks for the links.
The survivor’s hotshot prayer was just too much bless that kid.
The C-span link at the top of the thread has an archived link for those that may have missed the live event.
Cedar Dave, thank you for all the links, the broadcast connection and follow-along, donation sites, and the archived link. It was most generous of you to compile the info and share this heart-touching and beautiful memorial with us.
A couple of months ago, I made a new friend who touched my heart - a veteran firefighter. I’d just moved here, and one night, I looked across the street and saw him tinkering on the Model-A coupe in his garage. I walked over to introduce myself and admire it, and before long, he was recounting his firefighting days, of lives won and lost, and of his fallen comrades.
When I gently teased him about his ever-present shriner’s cap, he told me he always wore it, even at night, because of severe burns he received rescuing a baby and two kids from a burning home. He regularly drives children to the shriner’s hospitals south and west of the city.
Wherever they are, in heaven or on earth, these brave souls are a true league of extraordinary gentleman. May God bless them and keep them and comfort those who love them. Amen.
