shaka, sweet

A firefighter with the Honolulu Fire Department waves a ‘shaka,’ a gesture of ‘aloha,’ as President Barack Obama’s motorcade drives past on the way to his vacation home in Kailua, Hawaii, January 2, 2011, following a morning workout.

    now that is a caring firefighter who really sends a doze of happiness through my unaplogetically liberal heart – a public officer who takes time out of his day os service to acknowledge another dedicated public officer (president Obama)

      I think he knows who loves him and values his service too, Linda. He has to know that the president signed the Zadroga bill today! I was beyond upset with the republicans always claiming 9/11 for themselves but not caring about our public servants who gave their lives and/or ruined their health for the sake of others. I can’t think of a more selfless group of people than those who would put their lives on the line for others. My mom and dad would always say that love is what . The republicans can talk about how much they “love” the 9/11 responders or how much they “love” the troops, but until they’re willing to develop policies that help them, it’s love in words only, and it doesn’t do anything for any one of the members of these groups.
