As we trudge through the muck of crap weíve been hearing from Oakbrook, Illinois, Xenia, Ohio, and Obion County in Tennessee, I have become weary, incredulous, and frankly- pissed off.
Youíll understand then, how ecstatic I was when this video was forward me.
Itís from a Village Board meeting in a neighboring town of mine- Palatine, Illinois. Firefighters stepped up and shared with those who hold the purse strings the reality of operating as a firefighter and paramedic in their local community. As these council members fervently extol, their eyes were opened.
Itís a welcome breath of fresh air when I needed one most. The video gives us hope that sanity still exists despite the slop weíve been enduring.
It worked in Palatine. I wonder if we can make this work elsewhere?
