People often feel a calling to certain fields because they have an innate sense for it. Sometimes the required characteristics need to be learned, other times they are a result of contemplation in regards to each individual situation. But, what makes them moral? Carl has been a firefighter in Stoneham, Mass for eight years. He is a trusted member of the team that works out of the Stoneham station. When he was just a boy, Carl dreamt of being a fireman and riding in the trucks. As he aged, his desire to do to this became about more than just trucks. He wanted to help people. After he went through college and training to fight fires he realized that his dream could actually be accomplished. During the rigorous training and actual field rescues, helping people became his natural reaction. Now, when Carl sees a fire, his reaction is not to be scared but to stand-up to the challenge.
