I'm in awe of cbg folks who write and share their original songs. This one is a heartwrenching fresh-made contemporary folk tune with big power. Huge respect and hats off to you Danny. I hope this inspires other Members to post the music they feel running through them. It's awesome stuff.

Without first responder folks like you Danny our Country would revert to cannibalism I swear to God. Thanks for your service to community Brov.

Heartfelt and powerful! It takes a special understanding person to do it, thanks for opening eyes Danny! I understand about hearing things you take home and have to live with! I listened for six months over in Vietnam  12 hours a day, to listening sensors in towns and roads and trails for enemy movement. I’d report any and all suspicions. Many times moments later hearing bombs and  artillery , then sometimes silence, sometimes suffering, a lot of crying, etc.....terrible stuff. Hats off to you, Danny!

Dennis thanks for the nice comment. AD we do have resources to help, I am on a critical stress management team that our center has. I wrote this song because no one knows what a 911 dispatcher has to endure. I wanted to get the word out there and bring some respect to the job from the general public. I have been on both sides of the radio having been in the EMS field and a law enforcement officer too. I appreciate your concern AD but yea maybe I was venting some stress when I wrote this but as I had said my music is my release. Thanks again everyone on here is great
