Secrets to the Wind

A  L  O  H  A !
" Stories happen

to those

who tell them. "


Thucydides









" For every complex problem

 there is an answer

 that is clear,

 simple,

 and wrong. "


H. L.  Mencken









" And the leaves

 were telling secrets 

to the wind. "


Peter Mulvey

Seeing the citizens of Massachusetts

applauding

their police officers

after the bombing suspect hunt

touched me very much. 

Police are human beings.

When they do not

live up the the badge

it is worse than sad.

When they do,

it is noble work.

We all benefit.

They deal with

the angry, the impaired,

people at their worst;

Do NOT be one of those.

Show patience,

do not make their job

more difficult.

No one wishes

to be corrected

but we all need

the peace that they 

enforce.

Smile
at a police officer
today!

They all did a marvelous job! Our stories are written in the wind, and listening to the leaves tells it all! Peace to all....

Yes, when the police do such things well they should be applauded and lauded. too often we pay attention only to the negatives.

Hooray for all of the officers. They don't make enough money for what they do.
Love the soft, fluffy cloud spearing through the sky. I think I recognize that intersection: near Princess Kahuliani Hotel, where the direction changes in the middle of the block! Will hire your scooter next time. DrumMajor

Loved the H.L Mencken quote. And yes, smile at a police person - and an ambulance officer too. Surprisingly I found that they too are often abused as they do their best to help us.
I do love your heart. Caring, sharing and giving.

I agree.
And the quotes and pictures are perfect as ever.

Yes, we need to give more credit to the police officer. The good always outweighs the bad. =)
