First responders deserve thanks

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Dear Editor:

We know that when a tragedy happens in a community, it brings the citizens together to help the families and that is the way it should be. It’s good to see everyone helping the families involved in the tragedy. That is what the community does well.

There are the forgotten that are also affected: the witnesses whose lives are permanently changed. Our police officers, EMS, fire departments, county officers and DPS, yes, they are doing their job; a profession they chose to make a difference. They are sill men and women that have families, worries and bills, just like us.

They serve and protect us and our communities. I feel that we should thank them all and show them respect for what they do for us. They are called when needed and forgotten when they are protecting us. They take the horrific scenes home with them and, sometimes, can’t sleep or rest.

Until we do their jobs, to go stand at a fence like the OMC bombing site and smell the decaying bodies, and see your father crying because it reminds them of war, we cannot know what these men and women go through, every day.

We need to pray for them and give them a hug, and thank them for what they do for us. We want to say thank you.

/s/Irene and Tony Hanson
