Aren’t firefighters cool?

Yesterday I was playing videogames in my room when I heard people screaming. I went out and saw: my neighbors’ house was on fire! less than 10 minutes the firemen arrived and fought against the fire for one hour until they made it. Wow! They are really brave! One of them entered the house and saved the Johnson’s dog that was trapped in the fire.

I made a decision: I want to be a fireman when I grow up. I’ll be strong and brave enough to fight against the fire, to save people’s lives and property. I can’t wait! I can already see it in the newspaper: “Brave fireman rescues a family of four”, Mom will be really proud.
