This light-hearted cartoon may make your day.
It certainly gave me a chuckle.
But on a truly serious note:
Passion and purpose are two major keys to success.
Our friend Kathy Little knows this well.
Kathy works as a TSA behavior detection officer.
She watches for suspicious behavior.
She says she and her colleagues do this due to 9-11.
Their purpose is to make everyone safer. She writes:
“We are here because a terrible thing happened.
“We were created in the wake of the terrorist attacks.
“ We care. We are here for you.”
TSA officials will observe a moment of silence Sunday.
They will invite all travelers to join them.
Think of how 9-11 has changed our lives.
Be grateful follow-up attacks have been thwarted
Think about that the next time you take a flight.
Sure it is inconvenient to show up two hours early.
Sure it is inconvenient to go through security.
But do you want terrorists on the flight with you?
I thank the TSA officials every time I fly.
I joke with them about my photo ID.
“That’s my grandfather’s photo,” I say.
“He looks a lot like me, doesn’t he?”
That almost always produces a smile.
On the eve of 9-11, thank the Kathy Littles of TSA.
They keep us safe in the air and on the ground.
