FALLEN HEROS

We all have had had to carry the burden of kissing our loved ones goodbye every day not knowing if it would be the last time we might see them, always having to look over our shoulders to make sure someone doesn’t cross that line, and a few were not real fortunate to have went home to their families, because you thought you may have needed to post a picture up to your social media about that wreck that you just drove by, or that text message letting your friends know that you are distracted and not paying attention to the road your driving on.

Well, here is thier stories, please take time to read them and understand that they are just a few of the thousands of first responders out there doing thier jobs on the side of the road……..
