Happy New Year
Life is truly like a roll of toilet paper. The closer you get to the end, the faster it goes. 2016 seems somewhat like a blur, it flew by so fast. But, what a year! It was full of ups and downs and we fought like heck to rid ourselves of some of the worst that government has to offer. In most cases, we succeeded. Others, well, we have to deal with them a little longer.
Goodbye 2016 and hello 2017! Yes, another year is in the books. I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
At the time of this writing, we’ve had a staggering 134 law enforcement fatalities in the year 2016. The State of Texas led the country with 18 officers killed in the line of duty, and Florida ranked 5th for in the line of duty fatalities.
I hope you all had a joyful and safe holiday season with your loved ones. For my brothers and sisters that worked through the holidays, I know that feeling well and I thank you for keeping us safe. This new year brings us hope and the opportunity to do great things together. It’s time to put our differences side and come back together.
The month of January is here. I hope you all made your New Year’s resolutions not just attainable but maintainable. For me it was simple - lose five pounds and keep it off. It’s funny when you’re younger you’re always trying to gain weight, and now that you’re older you hate stepping on a scale.
