    Among the dead firefighters was Lt. Michael Chiapperini, a 20-year veteran of the Webster Police Department and "lifetime firefighter," according to Pickering. Chiapperini was a spokesman for the police department, ABC News affiliate WHAM reported.
    followed by a quote from the fire cheif:
    The chief, choking up, called the incident that shattered the quiet before 6 a.m. on Christmas Eve morning "terrible."

    "People get up in the middle of the night to fight fires," he said. "They don't expect to get shot and killed."

    Two quotes I wish to live by "Strength and Honor" (Gladiator) and "Do or Do Not, There is no Try" (SW-ESB).
