We recently witnessed a horrific fire disaster in the core of our community. Multiple businesses; a veteran’s home, went up in flames.
We, collectively, need to pause for a moment, in humbled gratitude, to Rome’s Bravest, Rome Fire Department; and Rome’s Finest, Rome Police Department, for saving a human resident and his canine from the inferno and preventing the entire surrounding block from such a fate.
If they were able to do so, they would have saved those creatures inside Peterson’s. To paraphrase a comment from history --- so many of us owe so much t o so few among us. Again, thank you RFD & RPD for being on the front lines each and every day protecting our community!
