I had hoped this blog would pay for itself, but my advertising tool of choice has chosen to ban this blog, my ip address, and me from using their services - FOR LIFE! I can't even begin to fathom what might be so offensive about this or any of my blogs. They won't elaborate on their decision. So...I'll post when I can, and said web service has fallen from its pedestal.
Still, there's good news to be shared. What's yours?
There's been a lot of saving going on lately:
On June 12, police offers may have saved the baby to whom they administered CPR after his dad found him unconscious and lifeless in his crib.
Officers rescued a 2-year-old child from a knife-wielding suspect who had allegedly abducted her from a shopping cart on June 17. While the incident and outcome were tragic, what would have happened had no law enforcement been available?
In Atlanta, an officer and a bystander saved a 50-year-old man from an oncoming train.
In Toms River, NJ, state police officers rescued 7 from an overturned boat on July 4.
Also in July, police listened to citizens' cries for help to rescue a duckling that had fallen into a Sarasota, FL storm drain.
In Wisconsin, police officers rescued a woman from a burning home on July 2.
Police even took the time out of their busy schedules to rescue a small dog which had become entangled in fishing line and appeared to be drowing.
In Rock Hill, S.C., officers rescued seven people from a burning building.
In mid-June, an officer in Kill Devil Hills, N.C. resuscitated a construction worker in cardiac and respiratory arrest.
Even while on vacation, officers are thinking of others' safety. While in Hawaii with his family, an Arizona police officer and former lifeguard rescued a drowning woman.
And the beat goes on...
