Officers take their jobs seriously and should be respected


Roughly two months ago I had a family emergency and I dialed 911 and, in all my confusion, I hung up.

The very next thing, three young police officers showed at my front door. I apologized.

If there's anyone out there who thinks those officers don't take their jobs seriously, please think again. And always, when I/we dial either number, please show respect.

I really learned my lesson, and I will not forget it.

We all should remember when police officers are sent out, they have no idea of what they could or would be facing.

So, let's thank all of our South Carolina men and women police officers.

I also have a thing that I do when I see a military man or woman. I shake their hand and say thanks for your time to our country.
