Sense of Duty

1. Sense of Duty-1For those who are serving or have served “mail Call and Care Packages” were absolutely awesome and really do boost one’s morale. Dedicated citizens in the military protect the freedom of those at home. Simply stated, if you appreciate the freedoms you have, then share it with the loved ones in harm’s way. There is a free program available where people can adopt overseas service personnel. It is called “Adopt a Hero.” Here is the link if this is something you might be interested in: www.adoptahero.us. Another wonderful way to help, is to assist a disabled veteran, give support to the Wounded Warrior Program www.woundedwarriorproject.org. The one thing all veterans share is the pride of service; we served with many men and women in uniform. For that time, they were our family.

There is no higher religion than human service. To work for the common good is the greatest creed.

-Albert Schweitzer 1875-1965, German, theologian, philosopher, and physician.

I think of this statement when I think of the veterans, firefighters, and police officers in our great nation. From North to South, from East to West, there are many that go on duty every day and serve our citizens, knowing what counts most in life is what we do for others.

The foundation stone of the whole scheme is service. Service to the people, service that will lighten, brighten and make more profitable the lives of the majority who do the necessary work of the world.

The lost of State Trooper Aaron Beesley only proved, he lived every day by the core values, we hold so close in serving the citizens. He came to serve, not to be served, he needed not credit or award, but his service was all the credit he needed.

State Trooper Aaron Beesley is a wonderful example for all to follow.

Stay alert, stay safe!
