You captured the firefighter's feelings so well in this shot, Steve. Last evening we watched Dateline's "Taken" about Matt Landry's being found in one of these burned out homes outside of Detroit. Your photo this morning brought it all back.

A house fire is always sad, but to add the dynamic of a child brings an even greater sadness.

The toys and other household items remind us that this was a home. That is a great backdrop for the fatigue of the firefighter. Nice work.
