Its been a little while...

Over the past few months I haven't blogged much, really consider not doing it at all. I only have one follower (Thanks to her) but this isn't just for others. This is a way for me to remember what I will probably forget in about a week.

I started the new job with Longview, and I love it. I dont just love it, I LOVE it. I have come to realize that it isn't always about a victim with a face, but there are people out there that I am trying to prevent from being victims. I don't have some fancy or poetic words to describe what goes on at 2:00 a.m. but I can tell you this, like momma always said that whatever goes on after 11:00 isn't good. LOL

I dont know if people think about how close they come on a day to day basis of being a victim. You hope that guy that is walking down the road isn't drunk and about to walk infront of an elderly lady who will never forgive herself for not being able to stop. You hope that the driver of the other vehicle coming towards you at 50 mph in the other lane isn't a drunk. You dont think that the man next door would beat his wife. You see the kids on the playground but dont realize that they are planning to break into your house after school.

 I know that I have seen some really great people doing an even greater job at what they do. I have not seen anything that these folks take lightly. Sure we all have our pet peeves I guess, but I never imagined that people would go so far to protect people they hope to never meet. I am so glad that I am being trained to work with the finest.

I'm not a "follower", but I still check in on your blog every now and then :)

By the way, I am not sure about other people but I can't go through a day without wondering how close my family and I come to "being a victim." I can think of 5 too-close-for-my-comfort calls that we have had this year alone. Including the trailer on back of a truck going over into my lane while I drove over a bridge and a guy almost stepping out in front of my car one night - dressed just right that I couldn't see him until last-second.

The silly thing is, most of those worries would go away if people would just be good in the first place. So glad to know that there are people like you to help cut back on certain things :)
