First Responder Appreciation

First Responders...we thank you for your heroic efforts every day!

This has certainly been a tough week with the Boston Marathon bombing, the fertilizer plant explosion in Texas and severe weather scattered across the country.  In each of these tragedies, the tireless work and selfless sacrifice of first responders has been heroic and inspiring!

Sadly, we all too often take for granted what these brave men and women do every single day, and that's why we thought that it would be a great to say "Thank You" this weekend, and let them know how much we appreciate them.

Please join us by writing them a thank you note, baking some cookies to drop off at the fire department, buying them a meal or saying thanks in person!

Everyday, first responders put their lives on the line to ensure our safety, the least we can do is say "Thank You"!

Thank-you for your kind words of support. Firefighters and first responders (career and volunters) are not fearless, do not have super powers. They are never fast enough, but yet drive too fast. They are not looking for a "hero" status but would like community support. They miss a lot of family time and respond at all hours to help those in an emergency. They take pride in what they do, and do it to help their neighbors (and maybe because they are just a small part adrenalin junkies)They are merely human and a simple thank-you is worth more than gold.

God Bless.

Very true! I highly respect our first responders. I personally know a lot of people who work in these fields. I have a lot of friends on our local police force. I thank each one of them, for what they do. They are human just like us, they must overcome their fears and work through everything! I pray for everyone them!
