Here’s my editorial cartoon for the last print edition of FireRescue Magazine. As all great things must come to an end, so does this influential magazine with its rich tradition and history. It’s been an honor to have my cartoons within its pages for the past four years! Sad to see the print edition end, but with all things, hope springs eternal for a new direction. Onward…

SEEING RED

SeeingRed

Recently, I read this quote by an anonymous author – “A strong woman stands up for herself. A stronger woman stands for everybody else.” I can think of nowhere else this is truer than in today’s fire service.

My daughter, now 24, has never known a mother and father that wasn’t inspiring her to be anything she wanted – anything, regardless of the physical, emotional, and mental challenges.  I was raised in a family of strong women, married a strong woman, and fathered a strong daughter – and I proudly serve in a fire and EMS service of strong women. I will fight the nastiest of fires and crawl down the darkest hallways with you. I will build you up when I can, and watch you soar far beyond my limitations. And I call you Sister with pride and reverence.

STAY FIRED UP, and remember, Dedication, Passion, and Skill knows NO gender… and NO limitations!

What is leadership? What does it look like? What does it walk like… sound like? For most of us, we know a good leader when we meet them. They have a certain magnetism and charisma that just makes people gravitate toward them, and if they’re true and deserving, we follow – not blindly, but willingly. My friend EJ Mascaro was one of those leaders – true, trustworthy, passionate, genuine!

I had the honor and privilege to attend in his last class and I sketched out the concept from one of many brilliant insights into leadership from his military mindset. I couldn’t find the lines to draw this cartoon until recently. I hope I did him proud!
