Do not drive them away when you need them

With everything going on in this country and chaos in communities, many people who have dedicated their lives to those communities are being torn apart. 

Healthcare workers are panicked because the pandemic is spreading faster than they can keep up with. They want to be able to breathe again but when they ask for people to wear a mask and social distance to stop the spread of COVID-19, they get harassed.

Police Officers are being threatened, attacked and condemned for what a few bad ones did, plus facing losing their jobs with the push to "defund" the police departments. Yet these same officers turn around, show up for their shifts, put their lives on the line all over again every day. 

Protestors are pushing for change, and rightly so, but in the process, they are opening the way for looters and rioters to destroy the communities...the same cities and towns that lost police vehicles.

Everyone else is either fighting over doing things for the sake of others, or whining about wanting to go out and have fun again.

It's a mess! If you do not have PTSD yet, many of you will if you do not take action now.

If you are one of the people serving your communities, facing all of this, you need to remember that those you serve with, are in it for the same reason. Trust one another and stop pushing them away so that they can help you heal...and then you can help them heal too!

If you made it your job to save other people, then shouldn't it also be your job to let those you serve with save your's too? Wouldn't you do it for them? Then instead of driving them away, let them know you need their help to stay. #BreakTheSilentService and #TakeBackYourLife
