Today we honor our heroes and have designated it First Responders’ Day. Given all the tragic events of this past week, it’s fitting we take time to appreciate the service of those who are on the front lines. Those who are first to the scene, first to take you to the hospital, first to put themselves into harm’s way to protect you. It takes a special kind of person to step up and put the needs of the public first. These are the unsung heroes that never ask for recognition or want to be in the spotlight, but absolutely deserve it. We are one community. One state. Together we are Maine strong.
