Thanks to those who serve us

I would like to thank three special groups of people. The law enforcement officials, the volunteer fireman and the first responders.
The law enforcement officials put on their uniforms every day and go to work to protect us. They don’t know if their life might be put in danger that day. They will potentially risk their lives to protect us.
Thank you very much, law enforcement officials.
The volunteer firemen have to drop what they are doing whenever they get a call. They might be enjoying family time, doing their favorite hobby or whatever. They do this to protect our personal property. They do this willingly and don’t even get paid for this service. The fireman could also get injured or lose their life while they are fighting a fire.
Thank you very much, volunteer firemen.
The first responders also drop whatever they are doing and go to possibly save our lives. I know that they protective equipment, but they don’t know what transmissible germs or viruses the people might have that they are helping out. The are also an unpaid group of volunteers.
Thank you very much, first responders.
