This picture was on CNN today, a story about a fire in Germany. Basically, the baby's Uncle had to choose whether or not to drop the 9-month-old four stories to a policeman waiting below. The Uncle dropped him, and saved his life. I just can't get over this picture. It makes me feel so grateful for our safety. I am a little bit sensitive to small babies these days, but I can't imagine having to do what the Uncle of this little baby did. Eric and I have talked a lot about what we do in certain situations to protect our family (mostly Amos). I am so grateful that we haven't needed to execute any of our plans. Seriously, go buy a fire alarm if you don't already have one.

Oh my gosh! I can't imagine what would go through my head if I were faced with that decision! That picture is amazing--almost looks fake. Yes, fire alarms are super important. And I'm glad my apartment is on ground level!!
