Holy Crap, we're still here! Can it really be our 12th Anniversary? Yes, yes....I know we're still running on fumes but we're still around! See last year's anniversary message for the way I still feel about things. And add to that, the complete and total calamity that has taken over our so-called community. Not the LEO aspect of it, but the general community. It's out of control. That we allowed ourselves to be affiliated with this whole antifa nonsense and all of the related mish-mash associated with it is unacceptable.
Is this what we've worked for all these years? Not me, I can tell you that. Meanwhile, the war on Cops and other law enforcement goes on unabated. Now we have more LGBT Police groups being discriminated against, by our own people. Even more than last year. A disgrace. While we've slowed down a lot, we're still here and in my opinion, maybe our focus has changed slightly. Still LGBT centric but more importantly, we need to be more law enforcement centric. For our own good and for the good of our brothers and sisters in blue. There is so much turmoil these days and that is why it is important that we stick around. We have to be there for those who need to vent about our community, it's shortcomings and it's triumphs. When I say "community", I mean LGBT AND LEO. I know I'm being mostly negative here. (Shocker, huh??!!) Who, ME?!!
But....yes...12 long years....when I gave it two at most! We do serve a purpose now, as we have on the day we started. So what if we don't post every day..... The violence against Cops almost every day is, to me, like getting hit in the head with a baseball bat and it overwhelms me. I've been to too many Police funerals lately, so much so, that I have to start picking and choosing which ones I go to. It's THAT overwhelming.
Anyway.....I'll wrap this up for now....We're still here, we're still Que.... (oh no you don't!) and we're not going anywhere. Again, I thank everyone for the participation, even though it's a little sparse these days. I'm as much at fault as anyone else. But it is what it is. I do appreciate all that we've done and all that have been here for all these years, as well as the newer members.
And....on to year 13!!
