I can’t help but think, every time I watch the video from the Boston Marathon finish line, at how AMAZING it is that we have men and women in uniform (EMT, EMS, Police, Fire, etc.) who didn’t HESITATE to rush TO the calamity instead of away. These are the same men and women who STILL do not get compensated nearly well enough, have been on the front line for budget cutting and sequestration and so on and so forth, and yet, in times of crisis, they STILL put others ahead of themselves.
Do we even deserve them? Thank goodness they don’t ask that.
