The Response to the First Responders

A horribly tragedy last week in Aurora, a few miles from my home. People killed in a theater by a crazy man, and a shocked nation.

I didn't hear about it until the next morning, but in watching the news conference the next night, I was pleasantly surprised, and inspired to see our governor praise the first responders, and make allowances for any mistakes made. It was an impossible situation to predict or train for. Yet the praise for those involved, instead of seeking personal glory, or spreading blame, seemed to be a theme. Apart from our governor, I've seen numerous posts and notes that thanked all the police and emergency personnel.

Inspiring to see people come together.
