When fires were destroying the Windsor Green apartments in Carolina Forest. When bombs were exploding in Boston. When a fertilizer plant is devastating a Texas town. When most people are running to escape, others are running towards the danger.
In disaster, it is our instinct to flee. However, there are people who charge towards the unknown; First Responders. Firefighters, police officers, EMTs and others risk their lives to save ours. They don't do it for the credit and they certainly don't do it for the money. But they are there.
So we say thank you to all of our first responders. I'm certain there are days you feel unappreciated, but you should know that you are appreciated and we are thankful for your willingness to serve.
