To be authentic is to be imperfect.

Authenticity is about imperfection. And authenticity is a very human quality. To be authentic is to be at peace with your imperfections.

Great leaders are not the strongest; they are the ones who are honest about their weaknesses. Great leaders are not the smartest; they are the ones who admit how much they don't know. Great leaders can't do everything; they are the ones who look to others to help them. Great leaders don't see themselves as great; they see themselves as human.

Great leaders don't try to be perfect, they try to be themselves ... and that's what makes them great.

It takes time to build an elite level Technical Rescue Team. It also takes a special breed of firefighter that strives for perfection and wants to be the best. Three members of “B” shift worked hard this week getting to technician level in VMR. Great work this week boys!

This picture was taken by my brother who was a New York City Police Officer. Just wanted to say thank you and God Bless!
I'd like to thank you all for your service, being a firefighter is no easy task and requires an exceptional amount of courage. Because of these qualities, I thought some of you would enjoy this documentary, Above The Best. It's about the redemption of the Apache pilots in the Korengal Valley, but more importantly it focuses on the complex decisions soldiers must make for the safety of the group, similar to the decisions firefighters must make for the safety of their crew. I found the film enjoyable for its tasteful representation of the American soldier and I found it on Amazon.
