Today's famous person is Matthew.
"I wanna be famous because ever since I was little I wanted to ride on fire trucks and rescue people from burning houses. I'm now work for a fire department, and almost everyday I ride a fire engine and help someone in one way or another. To see the smile on children as we ride down the street with the lights and sirens, brings back memories. I can almost see myself as a child standing there with the biggest smile on my face. Everything seems to slow down, just long enough to see myself waving up at the fire engine. Knowing that I make that kind of impact on a child that young, or an elderly adult; not only makes my day, but my entire life a whole lot better. I think someone like me for taking time out of my own life, to serve and protect others, deserves to be remembered and honored."
