Thank you, emergency workers

Every day I read the Letters page of The Star,  to read eloquently expressed opinions, whether negative or positive. At times, I’m guilty of both. This go-around, it’s for the positive.

I have a few friends and acquaintances on both sides of the state line who work for one of the many local police departments. This time of year, John and Joan Q. Public don’t show much appreciation. Like everyone else, we’re all wrapped up in the hectic holiday season.

This statement goes out to all police officers, firefighters, medics and EMTs: Thank you so very much for the profession you chose!
