I posted this on another thread, but feel it deserves to be posted again. "Oh.. you're a Cop? That's cool. I wanted to do that. What do you make?" "WHAT DO I MAKE?? I make holding your hand seem like the biggest thing in the world when someone just tried to hurt you. I make 3 minutes seem like a lifetime when I am fighting a suspect while waiting for back up. I make those annoying sirens seem like angels when you need them. I can make your children breath when they stop. I make myself get out of bed at 430am to risk my life to save people I've never met. I make it possible to keep back the chaos everyday. I make going to work for your family's safety a duty that I will die for. I make myself work holidays, nights, during storms and other disasters. Today, I might make the ultimate sacrifice to save your life. I make a difference, what do you make?"
