For 1 day the united states were just that, united. We all watched the different agencies going door-to-door, the 24 hour news coverage, the sound of gunshots in middle class America. All right in before our eyes.
What sticks out for me, is that 1 citizen who looked out their window and thought "that looks odd." To observe something in their backyard. To see something is off and more importantly to make that call to police.
What do we even know about this person? This hero that helped bring an end to the terror in Boston. And how do we ever thank them?
I listened to the news stories of bombs being thrown at the police agencies as the chased down the suspects. Fear of booby-trapped homes, explosive vests, and gun battles on the streets of Boston. It was something out of a movie. But the men and women of law enforcement faced that terror head on, and won.
What do we even know about these men and women? These hero's that helped bring an end to the terror in Boston. And how do we ever thank them?
How do we ever thank them for stepping up, taking action, and protecting their city? They served their city and their county when we were all living in fear of "what's next?"
I hope as time fades and normal every day life returns I don't forget that every day brave men and women step up, take action, and protect this country.
