I Have a Dream

I have a dream. I dream of a blog where I don't have to airbrush the name of my agency out of photographs before publishing them. I dream of writing about the good things that the people in my agency are doing, without having to alter names, ages genders and assignments. I dream of people from my community, my agency and from the fire service all being able to read about what's going on and see images of us in action. I have a dream of publishing photos that have not been cropped in order to eliminate clues as to where they originate.

I have a dream of being able to promote my blog to people I know and not having to keep what I do a secret. I have a dream of being able to have guests posts (besides my idiot brother) that will present material that shows others point of view. I have a dream of showcasing other agencies in my area and the good things that they do.

Is it possible, or is it just a dream?

Wish me luck.

Thanks for reading,


  1. Will being retired give you that freedom?

  2. I hear 'ya. That's a great dream.

    I'd bet the majority of fire service bloggers also share that dream.

    As for my "agency", not a chance.

  3. Good luck :-)

  4. Anon - Yes, but to what extent I do not yet know. Some things are in the works, we shall see.

    Rambling Chief - I think the majority do share the dream, though there is an advantage of anonymity. It does allow one to throw out political correctness when discussing controversial subjects, especially emotionally charged ones.

    HG - Thanks, I think things are progressing nicely.

    Thanks all for the comments.

  5. Good luck and hope all is workng out!!

    One day I too dream of stating my agency and location proudly and hope to better assist and educate the public.
