MY CHRISTMAS EVE
Some stories truly speak to the heart and retired Ohio State Trooper Bob Welsh’s touching poem, “My Christmas Eve”, is certainly one of them. With his permission, we had the honour of recreating his poem. Bob Welsh’s poem represents the highest level of Safety, Service, and Security to those we serve. This is something that is truly shared by every member of public service, no matter the patch, badge, uniform, or job description. The opportunity to serve is the greatest of gifts and this poem is a great reminder to us all that even the smallest gesture or action can have a positive impact on those around us.
The underlying message of this poem brings to light how impaired driving can impact not only your life but the lives of those who love you. I, personally and all members of our Veteranweb Network urge you to never drive impaired. Please have a Plan B in place to get home safely before you celebrate this Christmas season. Ray
