CHEERS - To responders. The images of heroic acts after the sickening Boston bombings are fresh in our minds. Meanwhile, we hear news of a massive fire in Texas and the death of a young boy who was hit by a pickup truck in Gloversville. These are the types of tragedies our dedicated first responders - professionals and volunteers - sometimes face. While first responders are trained to be prepared to handle emergency situations, they are not immune to the emotional effects of tragic incidents. These people deserve our thanks and praise for being there.
