It shouldn’t take a tragedy like 9/11 or the Boston Marathon Terrorist Attack for the media and the public to acknowledge their heroism and remind us all to appreciate and thank our police officers. Next time you see an officer directing traffic, walking a beat, responding to a call or working at a road detail, think about their dedication to a dangerous job and remember that these officers are ready to lay their life on the line in an instant for you. Don’t hesitate to say thank you or offer a gesture of appreciation. It’s time everyone in the community gratefully acknowledge their efforts as a matter of routine.
God bless our men and women in blue for all they did for us after the Boston Marathon Terrorist attacks and all they do every day of the year. They sacrifice for us in so many ways. It is time we all recognize their daily sacrifices and unselfish devotion to us and say, thank you, thank you, thank you. We will be using BallinLawBlog in the coming months and years to highlight the positive contributions of police in our communities.
