Letter to the Editor: Police, firefighters deserve our thanks


Saturday, March 17, 2018

Dear fellow citizens of Rocky Mount,

This is a “shout out” to our Rocky Mount Police Department and our Fire Department.

I will say “thank you” ladies and gentlemen for all the time, courage, dedication, faithfulness and love you show us here in Rocky Mount.

I especially appreciate each and every one of you and I pray each and every day for God's guidance, wisdom and protection for your daily duties you perform in keeping us safe. We all need to love one another more and care for one another more. The more we love the more we will care. Let us love our policemen and firemen then we can work together. Let us help them as much as we can by reporting crimes and keeping watch for things that are out of the ordinary or when we see happenings that doesn't happen regularly.

I would like to ask my fellow neighbors and friends to show these men and women how much we love them and appreciate their willingness to serve us, by thanking them when we see them and even shake their hands or maybe give them a hug. May God continue to bless and keep them.

Roberta Joshua
