I know that our country especially, but all over the world people are mourning the tragic events in Colorado. But rather than focus on the monster that perpetrated this horrific crime, I feel like we should raise up and praise not only the victims, but the survivors and emergency personnel involved. All to often, the hidden but extraordinary efforts of emergency responders are forgotten in the aftermath. I support the outpouring of love for the victims and survivors, but want to take a moment to say Thanks to the ambulance drivers, the paramedics, the police officers, and the nurses and doctors at the hospital caring for these folks.
It is at times like these you really learn what is important, and I promise it is not the sexual orientation or skin color of your rescuer. It may not be much, but from the bottom of my heart, I want to say Thank You to all the emergency responders in America, but particularly in Aurora, Colorado.
