Those who serve in difficult times deserve our heartfelt gratitude

Posted: Thursday, November 27, 2003

Tuesday, I passed a terrible car accident on my way to work. By the look of the vehicles, I assumed some of the passengers did not survive. As I waited in line to pass the scene, I saw the men and women in uniform, going about the business of picking up shattered lives, changed in an instant by icy roads. Our brave firemen, emergency medical technicians and policemen are trained to respond professionally, but sometimes their eyes reveal when a scene is really bad.

Today I just want to say thanks. Thanks to our public servants, who share our lives as football and little league coaches, church leaders, school volunteers, and so much more. They are fine men and women, who have made a commitment to protect and serve in the most difficult of times.

Thank you all, and God bless you and your families this holiday! And please, everyone, drive carefully; it will make their jobs a little easier.
