The 81 Fallen
Just before I created this piece I checked how many firefighters had died in the line of duty in the United States and Canada this year. I'm sad to say it's 81, 78 in USA and 3 in Canada. It's hard to get an accurate number, I decided on 81 after looking at several sights and I went with the most common numbers. Please comment if these figures are not accurate.
This one is for the 81 Fallen and their families who will be spending the holiday season for the first time without them. Stay safe brothers and sisters.
