America let's show our support to those who serve us!

If you read my posts you know that my daughter is a paramedic and my Donald is in law enforcement. And I know there is a rogue bad apple here and there, but 99% of the police, firefighters and paramedics in this country are public servants because they care so much. And of course there was the total insensitive nurse comments on the view. I've seen things that are upsetting in the news and in the media this week and I've seen extraordinary responses to some of the things happening in this country.  I want to share with you some of the disturbing and some of the extraordinary.  

I find it very disturbing that in San Antonio that firefighters have been given a directive to not drive/from work in uniform.  I guess if they need to go out the grocery store in the 24 hour shift they are supposed to change for that too?  I get that it is a safety measure, but doesn't that bother you that it needs to be done?  Yet one more officer shot today just doing a traffic stop. Disturbing. 

And the view talking heads with their stupidity and non apologies (I find disturbing too)

I had a very proud moment as mom when I read my daughter's response. Could you add to the 325 people who have liked and/or commented on her Facebook post. I think it was very well stated. Wish those ladies from the view could ride on my daughter's truck a few nights.  They might understand you have to wear a swimsuit or a formal gown to have "talent" and that Miss Colorado wasn't "reading her emails", she was giving a heartfelt talk about her career.

I also saw this and thought it was totally awesome. Maybe you can put a blue ribbon in front of your house and show your local police officers support. Or a red ribbon to support firefighters.  I think this neighborhood is just amazing.  I hope I can get this started in my community. How about you start it in yours.
