I am honored

I have been asked, along with everyone at my station, to read Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury and speak to the area high school senior English class about it.

Many, indeed most of the firemen in the city have said "no thank you."

On the other hand, I felt enthusiastic about it. The students will be assigned to read the book. Soon after that, those of us who agreed will spend a day at school talking to the classes about it. We will be giving our own opinions of the book, censorship, banning books, and why "knowledge is power".
I really am looking forward to it.

Mr Fixit
