Even if we don't make it (GASP!) I hope it sets a good example to follow. Do you know how much it means to even tell a Police Officer (doctor, nurse, ambulance attendant, teacher, cashier etc) what a great job they are doing? Do you know that for every negative thing we see on tv or read about, its probably the one negative thing among thousands of good things? Do you know how much power we have to build up our public workers, than tear them down - for a few mistakes/bad choices/bad people? It must be pretty difficult living under the dark shadow of bad publicity. How do you work when someone takes your entire profession or group and lumps them in with anything bad that's happened? How would we like someone to treat us.
Take a chance today - tell someone they are doing a good job (don't LIE, of course if they are not!) I'll bet that the real gift will be to yourself because I've seen the difference a few words of encouragement can make.
So if you can, VOTE here http://www.refresheverything.ca/honorourrcmp - and send your friends to vote and tell them to ask THEIR friends to vote and lets see if we can move the numbers up just a bit.
