Blue Thursday

by SufferforTribe

It’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these, at least I think it has. Being on vacation in a different time zone sure does mess me up, and being sick on top of it is no picnic. But I’m back home now.

I’m still sick, and want to just curl up on the sofa and sleep, but instead will share a few stories about our brave members of law enforcement.

While I was away, the fires started up in California, especially the northern part of the state. This officer, among many others, put his life on the line to warn people to evacuate, even helping another officer with someone who couldn’t have gotten out without help…..

This next one is about caring and kindness, and put a huge smile on my face. How cool that he did this for someone in need…..

Now this is cool, but definitely needs an upgrade…..

Those were 3 totally different stories, but this last one stands out from all others. It’s the sobering look at the dangers of being a member of the law enforcement community…..

* Note, one more from duckie.  Thank you Theresa who posted it elsewhere a couple of nights ago.  It’s a great example of how two sides can do something to learn from each other and understand that things aren’t always as “black and white” as they seem to be. In light of the statistics from Suffer’s last story, it really could help save someone if more could learn what cops deal with every day…

God Bless our LEOs! Thank you all for being on the front lines in our communities and for all the extra things that make a difference to so many.  Be safe out there.
