    What do you make....

    This was forwarded to me by one of my officers. I feel it's worthe sharing.
    Oh you're a cop? That's cool. I wanted to do that when I was a kid. What do you make?


    Written by some talented cop somewhere, here is an answer that I thought I would share.


    WHAT DO I MAKE??


    I make it possible to keep back the chaos every day.


    I make 5 minutes seem like a lifetime when I am fighting a suspect while waiting for back up.


    I make going to work for your family's safety a duty that I will die for.


    I make myself work holidays, nights, during hurricanes, riots, terrorist attacks and other disasters...... a standard day while you complain about your 9-5 in your air conditioned office.


    I make the fact that I may not get to eat, or get a break or cannot use the restroom when I need to, part of my job.


    I make running towards the gunfire and bad guys, so that you remain safe, an automatic reaction.


    I make getting shot at, stabbed, spit on, punched and kicked at work, an expected part of my day.


    I make working for people, who most often dislike me, swear at me, and complain about everything I do or do not do.


    I make working 12 hour shifts until 6 AM, my day at the office, so you and your family can sleep safely, a way of life.


    Today I might make the ultimate sacrifice to save your life.


    I make a difference, WHAT DO YOU MAKE?


    During this Christmas season, I give thanks to all my fellow law enforcement officers for the job you do, or have done in these ever increasingly difficult times.












    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    That was definitely worth the read!

    just did a bulk emailed with that


    "A strong man stands up for himself. A stronger man stands up for others."
    Ben

    The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
    on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
    expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
    brought my rifle."
    (just stole this one hope you don't mind)


    The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant,
    it is just that they know so much that isn't so.
    President Ronald Reagan
