A Better Mid-South: Appreciate our public servants

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, TN -

Editorial by Tracey Rogers, Action News 5 general manager:

This recent bout with winter weather got me to thinking about the hundreds of men and women who leave their warm homes to face danger to keep us safe.

I know we like to pick on the power company when our lights go out, but I think it would do us all some good to remember the men and women who are out in the freezing temps working to restore your power.

And what about the police officers, firefighters, paramedics, hospital employees and all the other public servants who do not get snow or ice days?

This time around, why don't we take a different approach and find one of these folks and just say a great big "thank you."

It will make their day and it should make your day, too.

Now, I want to hear from you. Email me your ideas for A Better Mid-South to wmceditorials@wmctv.com or you can get in touch with me on Facebook. Click here to find my page.

And remember, appreciating our public servants will make this A Better Mid-South.
