Real heroes don’t boast

I don’t recall ever hearing a firefighter telling people how brave or important he or she was ... or I didn’t until now. Dan Miller, a candidate for the PA State House of Representatives in the 42nd district, has now circulated several pieces of campaign literature featuring pictures of his uniform and fire helmet, and referencing his “decorated firefighter” status. All of New York City’s finest together, with their unparalleled heroism after 9-11, have not boasted as much as Mr. Miller has. Rather, they downplay their outstanding efforts by stating that they were “just doing their job.” They did, and God bless them! They are more concerned with the important and dangerous work they do than political grandstanding. Mr. Miller should take note. Boastful arrogance will not build consensus or get things done in Harrisburg.
