Stay strong. Stay staunch. Keep yourself wired tight.
It is important to remember this: people who do well, people who sturdily stand for their beliefs and people who are unwilling to yield to those who do evil ultimately become targets. An academy instructor said to me, "We do the only job where (bad) people want to kill us because of the clothing that we wear."
For the rattlesnakes in our camp: we are their target. They can only survive and prosper with our demise.
I refuse to give up. How about you?
