Thank You First Responders for Everything You Do!Posted By Joshua Unseth
We were all affected by 9/11. For those in my generation, there is nothing like it that has ever happened. I remember my father telling stories about the Kennedy assassination and how he remembers where he was when he heard the news. Likewise, I remember sitting in period C math class when over the loudspeaker, all the students were asked to come to the gymnasium where the our principal proceeded to tell us what had just happened. I remember it vividly as a confusing day. Planes were grounded, save for the occasional military aircraft patrolling the sky. People were stuck on vacations. No one knew who had done the act or why.
Now, 13 years later, I find myself working in a company that relies on the same first responders who responded on that fateful day to do routine checks on homes, protecting us from unseen dangers. At Alarm Grid, we hope that all of you who are protected by our monitored security systems are always safe and sound. But we can all be incredibly grateful that when we need them the incredible courage exhibited by police and firemen are welcomed.
So while we can all be a little bit sad today, remembering our fallen fellow Americans, don't forget to say thank you to all of the people whom make our lives a little bit better by keeping us safe.
