Remembering Arkansas Firefighters
Groundbreaking a success
Despite the cold, wet weather, the groundbreaking ceremony for the Arkansas Fallen Firefighters memorial held Saturday March 22, 2013 was a moving and well-organized event. KTHV's Tom Brannon performed an excellent job as Master of Ceremonies. View the short video on the THV11.com website.

GONE IN A FLAME
I know i should never ask why
But i really have to know
Why you had to leave this Earth
I wish you didn't have to go
I remember when we spent time together
Just about every single day.
You used to always listen to me
Every word i had to say.
I really miss you right now
And even though i try,
I can never erase that night from my memory
And it always makes me cry.
I can only imagine how it felt
The bright, burning flames
And the firefighters, all the firefighters
Your name along with their names.
I know I'm not the only one hurting,
And that's what makes it so sad.
But i think of all the good things that happened while you were alive,
And i try to be glad.
I know you would want us to be happy,
Because i know you wouldn't want it to be like this.
You wanted so much for us.
That's the way it was, and I'm sure that's the way it still is.
But this is the problem,
I don't know where you are, and i can only think your name.
And i remember the one thing we have in common,
Your heart, My heart, both gone in a flame.
Papaw, this is lori. i made this poem today, and it is for my dad about Papaw Stewart.
i just wanted you to see it. i hope you like it.
