Dear Editor:

It’s safe to say, in the wake of many national events, there has been a recent spotlight put on law enforcement personnel. Every day, as you go out to complete the duties demanded by that uniform, an unappreciative stigma surrounds you. Yet day by day, and night by night, you continuously put your community above yourselves. So while the spotlight shines, Orofino Girls’ Basketball is here to say thank you.

Thank you for risking your life for ours, for doing a job that many could not endure. The sheer grace and resiliency that every one of you holds should be nothing short of respected. The job of an officer of the law is one that can only be applauded. To get up, see the naked horrors of the world, and still demand a better future for men, women, and children alike, takes the strongest of individuals. Thank you. Thank you for being there for the little guy when life is at ten seconds, and they are down by two. Thank you for always rooting for the underdogs. And thank you, for making this world a safer place, for everyone with much humility and honor.

We also thank the families of all Law Enforcement Officers, Correctional Officers and First Responders as some of the greatest sacrifices are made at home. Thank you for supporting their commitment to keep our community safe.

Sincerely,

Orofino High School Girls Basketball Program
