AMEN BROTHERS and SISTERS.

  • I thought this was witty and a good quote. :)
    ____________

    "Oh.. you're a Police Officer?? Oh.. you're a Firefighter? That's cool. What do you make?"

    "WHAT DO I MAKE??
    I make holding your hand seem like the biggest thing in the world when I'm cutting you out of a crashed car. I can make 5 minutes seem like a lifetime when I go in a burning house to save your family. I make those annoying sirens seem like angels when you need them. I can make your children breathe ..................when they stop.
    I can help you... survive a heart attack. I make myself get out of bed at 3am to risk my life to save people I've never met. I make your family safe from the drug crazed neighbor. I make you and your family safe when you hear someone downstairs at night. I make sure your elderly grandparent is found and safely back home.

    I run toward danger while others run away. Today I might make the ultimate sacrifice to save your life. I make a difference, what do you make?"
  • Amen brothers and sisters!!!!!! This id The life of any public servant, who like us, Live to serve and HELP! Keep up the GOOD work LEO'S!!!!!!!
  • The Final Inspection


    The policeman stood and faced his God,which must always come to pass.
    He hoped his shoes were shining just as brightly as his brass.
    "Step forward now, policeman. How shall I deal with you?
    Have you always turned the other cheek?
    To my church have you been true?

    The policeman squared his shoulders and said.
    "No, I guess I ain't because those of us who carry a badge
    can't always be a Saint."
    I've had to work most Sundays
    and at times my talk is rough,
    and sometimes I've been violent,
    because the streets are awfully tough.
    But I never took a penny that wasn't mine to keep...
    though I worked a lot of overtime when the bills got to steep.
    And I never passed a cry for help
    though at times I shook with fear,
    and sometimes, God forgive me, I've wept unmanly tears.
    I know I don't deserve a place among the people here.
    They never wanted me around except to calm their fear.
    If you've a place for me here, Lord, it needn't be so grand,
    I never expected or had too much, but if you don't...I'll understand"

    There was a silence all around the throne where the Saints had often trod.
    As the policeman waited quietly for the judgment of his God.
    "Step forward now, policeman.
    You've borne you burdens well.
    Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets.
    You've done your time in Hell"
