This past week a dear family friend lost her nephew, Pablo Miguel Suarez in Bolivia.

Pablo was among the many brave men and women fighting fire in the Amazon. He succumbed from smoke inhalation as his group did not have the proper protection gear.

We honor Pablo through his Aunt Theresa.  Pablo was a 34 year old firefighter who died doing his job – to serve, protect and make a safe place for his fellow man.

These are the “True Heroes”.  The Firefighter’s, the Police, the Medic’s and all the First Responders.

As a Director of a Fire District in California, I see every day their bravery, commitment and focus.

Please read and pray with me for Pablo Miguel Suarez – May he be remembered by his family and friends with Honor & Love.  

Firefighter’s Prayer
When I am called to duty, God wherever flames may rage,
give me strength to save a life, whatever be its age.
Help me to embrace a little child before it’s too late,
or save an older person from the horror of that fate.
Enable me to be alert to hear the weakest shout,
and quickly and efficiently to put the fire out.
I want to fill my calling and to give the best in me,
to guard my neighbor and protect his property.
And if according to your will I have to lose my life,
bless with your protecting hand my loving family from strife. Amen

May God Bless and Protect all First Responders.

with Honor and Respect

Steve Gerbsman
