Let’s face it. It’s been a rough few months, weeks and days for our nation. We’ve lived through a summer of violence and hatred on inner city streets. We’ve grieved for the victims of mass shootings, and for the victims of terror on the streets of Paris, as well as apparently in our own backyard.Through it all, we’ve watched as the men and women walking “the thin blue line,” trying to protect us and our communities, are vilified, attacked and disrespected.
Which is why it’s so very heartening to hear this bit of good news. Chick-fil-A is showing its support for our law enforcement officers by issuing “Back The Blue” t-shirts to its employees.
A Conroe, Texas store manager said, “We’re supporting those everyday heroes that protect us. There are [police officer] regulars that eat here all the time, and we just want them to know that.”I know this isn’t the first time we’ve said this, but it’s just one more reason to enjoy those waffle-cut fries as often as your diet allows.
