This is a sad story that makes perfect sense to me, some may wonder why this hasn't happened before

There are certain things in life that don't make sense to other people, yet to me, it is crystal clear for all the right reasons.

One such individual has lost his life to cancer, as a Minnesota Firefighter exposed to the elements.

This is something we all know, and take for granted every single day. We live safe because of the men and women who are police officers in Bismarck/Mandan. We are all aware of the unknown they face and could put themselves in peril at a moment's notice. Here is a story of A Minnesota firefighter who just recently sadly made history.

At least in my case, It never even occurred to me just how many elements of danger I had no clue of, that a firefighter's face.
