    Just wanted to say....

    I was just watching Backdraft the movie, and it reminded me of who our real heroes are (Regardless if your American, Canadian, British, German, or Australian). Our Firefighters, Law Enforcement (Police) Officers, and our Military personnel. All Putting their lives on the line for our safety and well-being.

    From my Nephew (Former Army Medic in Afghanistan, now a firefighter with the Olympia Fire Department) to Slayergrrl and her Boyfriend working hard to keep their city streets safe for it's citizens and any Firefighters, Police Officers, and Military members on the xchange I May have missed....my hat is off to you guys!

    Thanks so much for all you do!

    Is there any word of thanks anybody here would want to say openly to others here...go ahead and post it!

    Re: Just wanted to say....

    When I was married the first time, I went from my father's violent house to the violence of my ex-husband, and I have forever been grateful to those sweet, understanding police officers who, along the way, saw me to safety and kept me from harm until I could get another place to live.

    I lived in a small town where the cops and other civil servants knew of his reputation and they were ALWAYS checking up on me.

    Thank you, too, to the teachers in school who knew when I was hungry or tired or otherwise in need and who did their best to help me. Without them, I am a kid who would have slipped through the cracks. Our heroes include those people we don't always think of Trust me, there are a lot of teachers, doctors, nurses, veterinarians, etc along the way who save us. If you don't think so, think of this--veterinarians often know when violence is going on in the home based upon what animals look like when they are brought in. Teachers know when something is happening when the kid always seems to be dressed inappropriately, tired, dirty, hungry, withdrawn, etc.

    Think of police dogs, too. Think of the Red Cross.

    I understand this thread is really about our military and civil servants and I really do appreciate them, but I don't want to forget the other often less lauded ones here and there. Without them, I would be either dead, stuck in an abusive marriage, drugged out in a city bus somewhere or whatever. THANK YOU. Life has been rough, but it could have been a HELL of a lot worse!!!

    Nope, this thread is about openly thanking ANYONE, who's made a difference!

    Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.

    Re: Just wanted to say....

    Thank you to all the heroes out there.
    It was 25 years ago this past Saturday when five firefighters lost their lives here in Buffalo fighting a propane explosion. Also, while I was at my Mom's there were a couple local firefighters who were badly injured fighting a fire. My grandfather was a volunteer firefighter and my heart breaks anytime I hear about firefighers being injured or killed while doing their jobs.

    Re: Just wanted to say....

    Absolutely! ANYONE who has chosen to serve others... no matter what it is... is a hero, in my book. Those that put their lives on the line are a special kind of hero.

    THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart.
