I don't want to be a downer...

But this story moved me to share


A Tennessee police officer lost his life Thursday while trying to save a woman who had threatened to end hers.

I've got friends on our local police department, sheriff's department, and fire department.... I can't say that there's a one of them that wouldn't give their life to save someone. They never know what they're going to get involved in when they're called out!

We live on the road where this occurred. Our community is heavy hearted for sure. He was a known hero in the department with many years of helping people under his belt. I have to say that of all the police I have had the chance to work with or encounter, Nashville has some damn fine officers.

We will keep him and those he left behind in our prayers.


Much respect for those who put it on the line to keep the rest of us safe.

The man I work beside daily (in a 2 person shop) is a firefighter.
We met as co-workers... Now we're friends that work together!

Anyway... In a 24 hour period this last Monday to Tuesday he was called out on 9 fire calls.
I've watched this crew. After battling a fire, and getting back to the station... The work begins! After every call, they have to wash down the trucks and equipment. (We've got 4 stations in our town)

There's a lot going on behind the scenes that a lot of people take for granted or don't know about!
I've known them to go out on a call, put out the fire, clean everything up... Get in bed for 30 minutes and get called out again. It's a dedication that should be recognized, not ridiculed!
