    I don't know how "National" it's gone on the news, but it was a really bad, bad, day here in Pittsburgh, especially for those of us who have loved ones in Law Enforcement.

    Most of the time I shove it into the back of my brain how dangerous it is to be "on the job", but today i can't. I know this is a chicken website, and I know this posting is really random/off topic, but I had to say something. It is a crazy world, and my heart goes out to those who have lost more than I can imagine.

    Hug whomever/whatever you love today.

    xoxo, Suellen

  4. I'm on duty today, at work as a read BYC. It has been a bad week. We had an officer killed a few towns over just the other day.

    My heart goes out to all the officers, their families and all the members of the thin blue line in PA. [​IMG]
    My special officer just left for work a few minutes ago. May everything that is good and right in this world be with them today.

    An "ongoing domestic", cops called and were totally ambushed. 3 killed, 2 (?) injured. One was "off duty" but lived nearby & tried to help/save fallen coworkers, I think he is one of the ones who died. It was a "standoff" for hours, many many gunshots, the guy gave up; is in custody, ALIVE, but with some injuries (gunshot wounds).

    Just makes me sad & scared. It's crazy. More info if you "google" it, I'm sure. DH at USAF Reserves today, not "on duty" with state police. I am thankful for that!!!!
  7. We had the same thing happen a few years ago here in Texas. Same kind of situation too.

    Dear PouletsdeCajun, and everyone else....

    it's usally pretty routine around here, a really good city & place to raise your children (and a couple/few chickens), I don't usually worry overly much about DH's job (would lose my mind if I thought about it too much!!), but today is one of those days where I can't get rid of it.

    Thank you to Poulets, and Gritsar, and to all the others that put it on the line for the rest of us every day

    [​IMG] I heard abouttoo. We live just across the state line. I can feel with you . MY DH is a soldier who will go from recruiting back to an MOS that requires him to go to the sandbox.
    Both of our DH have a job where they put their livess on the line.
    Thats why we never should let them go out the door without saying I LOVE YOU , you never know if they come back home alive. ( i nkow it sounds bad but that is how it is)

    Thoughts are with you all,

    I am sure words can never fully express how you all must feel.
