My interactions with people who make safety their mission have made it clear to me that they don’t do it for the glory. For most, it’s a calling. And although these dedicated people may not seek public attention for their efforts, it’s nice when opportunities to recognize them come up.
When power lines go down after storms, we wait impatiently for electricity to be restored – often without much thought for the men and women out in the bucket trucks, braving the elements when almost everyone else is being told to stay home. They deserve far more recognition than they receive.
