Little has been said about the emergency services, the police and the first responders who had to try to make sense of what was (and still is) clearly a senseless situation. Many of the deputies were on a day off, relaxing at home with their families, a hot sunny Saturday that should have seen them around the Bar-b-Que with a hot dog (or three). I heard one deputy comment that the budget was going to be cut and it made me (a lowly “rancher”) wonder what our world was coming to. We have our own lovely little world. Gentle Giant Meadows Ranch is a peaceful and happy place… but out in the bigger world these wonderful dedicated professionals are being faced with job cuts because of the budget. Hopefully we will never have a repeat of Saturdays nightmare, but if we do…we do need you guys and we want to THANK YOU for being there for us.
That is all I wanted to say today, our hearts are still heavy and the wounded are sadly still in hospital but today is another day.
Heartfelt thanks for all the kind words and messages, so appreciated.
Our animals await our morning appearance.
Take care, keep safe, M
