All-American Heroes

It’s the beginning of July and I just picked up my fireworks and the beer for my fourth of July BBQ. (Stupid PA beer laws that prevent me from getting booze and food from the same place and puts my nearest beer distributor 20 miles away but that’s another rant).  And on  my long ride to the beer distributors I got to thinking about what the actual purpose of Fourth of July is and no it’s not just beer and blowing stuff up.

So this month my blog is dedicated to all the men and women in this great country who step up and do the right thing to protect us all. Here’s to the soldiers, the police officers, the firefighters, the paramedics, the first responders and anyone else who runs into the places that the rest of us are running out of,  who deal with abuse and crap and everything else in your jobs to see the rest of us safe and cared for, and who never get thanks enough.

May each and every one of you be safe this coming holiday weekend. Happy Independence Day.

About Patricia Eimer
I'm a small town girl who was blessed with a large tree in the backyard that was a perfect spot for reading on summer days. Mixed with too much imagination it made me a bratty child but fated me to become a storyteller. After a stint of “thinking practically” in my twenties I earned degrees in Business and Economics and worked for a software firm in southwestern Germany but my passion has always been a good book. I currently lives in Pittsburgh with my two wonderful kids and a husband that learned the gourmet art of frozen pizzas to give me more time to write. When I'm not writing I can be found fencing and arguing with my dogs about plot points. Most days the Beagle wins but the Dalmatian is in close second. I'm in a distant third.
