Day 9 - What I am Grateful for in Katy TX - Police/Firefighters

Debbie Reynolds created a 10 day ActiveRain challenge concerning writing posts about what we are Grateful/Thankful for in our lives. This is my sixth post in this challenge series and I have many things to be extremely grateful for in my life. My posts will not be in any type of order. Some posts will be much longer than others. My last post will be tomorrow on Thanksgiving Day.


I am very grateful and thankful for Police Officers and Firefighters. I know in some people's opinion supporting one both of these groups is a problem. If you have a problem with me supporting them then don’t read my posts and stopping looking at my stuff on social media. I am definitely Old School as well as a law and order type of person and I completely support these folks. Both groups put their lives on the line every day just by showing up to work.


It makes me sick to hear on almost a daily basis about attacks on Police Officers and numerous times an ambush is involved. I have heard of Firefighters being attacked and I have no idea why this could even be considered. What is wrong with these people's brains or lack thereof. This stuff has to stop immediately. Protesting is one thing and protected by the First Amendment but murder and destroying property is criminal and should be treated as such and is not protected by said First Amendment Rights.  


I personally do not see enough support of either Police Officers or Firefighters being given by the US Government and other Government entities. This is not a political comment but an observation. All members of Local, State and Federal Government need to start making strong statements and take appropriate action to put a stop to this unacceptable and despicable behavior. It makes me wonder who is sponsoring these individuals with weapons and money plus stirring up hate? Jus sayin..



Above are some pretty flowers to hopefully make us feel better.

The police have a really tough job!  Especially in today's world.  I think I read today that 60 have lost their lives to shootings just this year.

We owe a lot to them, and to firefighters!
