Frank Napolitano
That is where we live - in that place - between life and death. It is a dark arena, where a game is played against a malicious enemy who never stops seeking victims. And sometimes, we have to make the trade. We have to trade ourselves for those we’ve sworn to serve.
Frank Napolitano, Day of Days: September 11, 2001, A Novel of the Fire Service
