Public service

I have lived in Chester county for five years now and the thing I have been most impressed with is Chester city and county public service employees. The emt's, paramedics, firefighters, volunteer fireman and woman and the city and county police officers are hard working and dedicated to what they do. They are paid very little and rarely receive recognition for their difficult and dangerous work. They are constantly critiqued and put down, yet they carry on with their duties. I am proud of these men and woman.

I totally, Chester's public employees work hard for very little pay. This has been the issue for well over 20 years now. It needs to be addressed.

It would be hard for me to

It would be hard for me to make a decision but if I had to choose I think the most that this county is part of one of those spotlight states, there good teaching opportunities here, that's probably what I like best.

Chester IS a Beautiful Place...

When one takes time to "stop and smell the roses" and actually notice the beautiful buildings, homes, and how "down-home" friendly people in Chester really are, one will benefit from one of life's best experiences... THE JOY OF LIVIING! Sure, there are gossips (my Dad said he graduated with many in the late '70's, and Church in NO barrier to this - and there will always be people jealous of you)but when you get down to it...people are people and it takes everyone to make a town special. Love one another and work for good in all things, then leave the rest on the door step. Those who look at the negative are missing out on life. Instead of being negative, add a positive! I will be moving back to Chester with my Dad this summer and we are excited AND yes, we plan to get involved with the positive (s)...Chester is a beautiful place...FIND THE BEAUTY!

Gangs, tough times, etc. How I feel about Chester.

Mam,

I know what you are going thru, trust me. I am unemployed, injured, etc...etc...but I'd suggest go to the local store and apply which sells Krispy Krunchy Chicken. They need help.

As far as the police, emergency responders, hospital, etc. I felt at home. You are well protected, at least I was. I pray to allow God to release my anger....constantly...and miracles never cease to exist, you JUST HAVE to notice what's around you. He is with you always. I believe in angels and Jesus Christ.

However, to be frankly honest with you I am well off in many aspects not dealing with money. Sometimes, I've found (taught to me by deceased father), a example of my kind of hero. One particular day as he was fighting Alzheimer's I put my arms around my twin sons and asked "Pop" in the yard of their former home..."Dad...he recognized me and looked up...I know you are in there...he smiled. I then asked "IF YOU COULD SAY ANYTHING TO HELP ME AND THE BOYS WHAT WOULD IT BE?"...HE LOOKED AT ME STRAIGHT IN MY EYES AND SAID: "JUST DO YOUR BEST." AND...THAT'S THE BEST YOU CAN DO. NEVER SAY NEVER EITHER. UNDERPROMISE AND OVERDELIVER. I HAVE PROBLEMS STILL, WE ALL DO....BUT I AM SWALLOWING MY PRIDE AND COLLECTING FOOD STAMPS TOMORROW IF ALL GOES WELL. I WILL PRAY FOR YOU. POST BACK IN THIS FORUM AND I WILL GET BACK TO YOU. THE REASON i AM TYPING SO BAD IS MY EYES ARE FAILING AT THIS LATE MOMENT. IN "COMPUTER GEEK" TALK...IT MEANS "i AM YELLING"...WHICH i AM NOT.

To all......

I got in the exact same kind of wreck in Columbia today and totaled my "new" car again. Black clouds? No. It's another sign that God's not finished with me yet. However, I was treated (on I-20 heading East toward Camden to see my Mom where she stays now to try and comfort her due to the anniversary of my Dad's Death which was August 26th.) much carelessly by just about every gawker EXCEPT the police officers and first responder for the DOT and the wrecker guys for me and the people I hit. Things will work out. You just gotta believe.....Take a listen to a song by Dolly Parton called "He's Alive" as she performed it live years ago. Youtube it. It will do wonders for your Soul and Your HOPE.

Meanwhile, just pray for me and my wife who isn't too happy with me right now.
