105′ with a pack and saw. Good times.
I have known Aaron for several years. He is the type of guy you think of when you think firefighter. He’s a stand up guy that loves his family, God, and others. Aaron is one of the men that has encouraged me along the way on my journey to become a firefighter. When I grow up I want to be just like him!
I’m currently reading through the Dune series of books by Frank Herbert (and later continued by his son). There is a substance in that universe called “melange” or “spice”. It has the effect of prolonging life, and imparting prescience to certain users. It permeates every planet in the universe as everyone is hooked on it to some degree or another. It’s largely benign as far as side effects go, and it is basically the central hub around which the entire universal economy turns.
We also have Spice here on Earth. Unfortunately, it’s not beneficial, it doesn’t prolong life and it is far far from benign.
