Default Re: Random Thoughts

We are the willing,led by the unknowing,doing the impossible for the ungrateful.We have done so much,with so little,for so long,that we are now qualified to do anything,with nothing.

The above was read at the day tour roll call,by the Deputy Warden tour commander at the Rikers Island House of Detention for Men.This was my first day as a Correction Officer back in 1979.I don't know why,but I always remembered this,and found it apropos for many situations.

Needless to say,after 3 years of doing that job,when the NYPD called....I went to where I belonged.
