Disadvantages: At least your alive
Now first off I feel that I should apoliguise to barrytoplis for writing on this subject so soon after he has and a great opinion it was to and all the best to him do give it a read but I felt that I have to send a reminder to him and everyone else out there of the REAL feeling of being alone and without those you love at christmas through death's in the family be them natural or not.
I as many people here know by now am a fireman who works in the south london area and this time of year is very bad for incidents and some can be truely gut wrenching and heartbreaking I am sure that you have heard about the little boy who died only the other day and the last that was seen of that poor kid was teddies being thrown at an upstairs window trying to break it the boy was three years old and his parents and siblings will be feeling alone this christmas even if they have each other.
The one thing that really pulls at my heart strings and that I find hardest about my job is when you have to deal with somebody who has lost a loved one in a fire or a whole family in one case those people are the ones who will feel really alone this christmas.
The fire regarding the little boy was caused by the mother lighting a candle and then leaving the house to buy some more because of a black out and when she returned the house was ablaze and I really feel for her and what she will feel like it will be the worst christmas of her life.
I would like to take this chance to remind everybody how important it is at anytime of year to be careful of causing a house fire but especially now when the merriments begin and lot's of cigarettes are being lit,lights being put up,candles being burned etc that we must be so careful and just stop and think are you being safe and do you want to have to feel that loss of a loved one be it christmas or anytime.
Right I have done my rightous bit and probably have you all saying who on earth does he think he is but hey if
that stops one fire this christmas or saves one life then I don't give a damn.
Enjoy christmas and every other that comes to you but don't forget that there are many people out there not as well off as you even if you are alone it will not always be like that.
BE SAFE *JOHN*(your in house fireman)
