Nextdoor?
« on: July 11, 2020, 02:29:16 am »
Nope!  I'm not a fan of Nextdoor, even though I regrettably encouraged 120 people to join it locally, and I'm a lead (for now -resigning some when soon). It's an organisation only interested in advertising revenue, finding lost kittens and promoting Tupperware parties. The truth? Adult discussion of important topics like safety?  Nah!  They're not interested, that might upset advertisers.

But every now and again, through all the murk comes a gem, and today I spotted this article by  a neighbor - Bill Rietz of Crescent Hill

Protecting Those Who Protect Us.

I am putting this out, like I have on other Social Media Platforms not for discussion or debate. Something like this may have gone out before, if it did I have not seen it. If you don't like it or agree with it move-on, I am not interested.

Attention: Police, Sheriff, Trooper, EMS, Firefighter, Nurse any and all people working in First Responder fields. You are NOT alone, you are NOT hated. You ARE SUPPORTED, you are LOVED and you are PRAYED for.

If you need a glass of water stop by...
If you need a meal, stop here. Kitchen is always open...
If you need a restroom break, stop here...
If your pen runs out of ink, stop by ... got a box full...

If you are afraid to pick-up take out for your lunch fearing it will be contaminated.. call me I will order and pick-up for you.
If you don't want to grab a coffee, thinking someone would foul it, call me I'll come order it and give it to you...

Need to use a restroom in a business, call me I'll come watch your cruiser...

Now, here is the important part..! I am a Vet. A USMC Combat Vet.

Need a safe place to decompress? Come by, I am here...
Need a place to remove the Vest, even for a moment? Just to sit... in the quiet? Stop by, always welcome...
Need to talk? Call me, anytime day or night...
Are the Demons getting louder? Come, we will fight them together...
Need to smash something, need to break something? Call me, I got a spot...
Need to holler' at the Moon? Yup, still here...   

I do not have all the answers, never claimed to. Many of the Horrors you see are like the ones I saw... And can never un-see..! YOU ARE NOT ALONE..!!

People need you, We need you, I need you.

I am here, right here ...
