Family and friends gathered early at the parade route, setting up chairs, coolers, and heaters at their favorite spots. As our neighbors were marching by, playing instruments, dancing, cheering, and tossing out candy, our small, safe town suddenly became the site of a horrific and evil act. So many of our fellow neighbors suffered tremendous loss that day. Certainly, the six families who lost loved ones have been at the forefront of our thoughts, followed by all those who suffered painful and life-changing injuries. But we recognize that even if you did not suffer loss or injury, we all lost a sense of safety and security that day.

In our profession as first responders, we know that we cannot always control what takes place in our community.
