The Augusta Chronicle on January 2, 2016 published a column by Georgia Emergency Management Agency Director Jim Butterworth. It included this assurance not to concern yourself with the impact your report on your neighbors might have. He concluded this column by encouraging us not to be “un-American” by failing to report something that “might be out of the ordinary.”
The bottom line is that we cannot let those who may have ill intent succeed in their desire to adversely affect our way of life. To let that happen would be un-American.
AS WE CONTINUE into the new year, make it part of your daily routine to be vigilant and engaged in your surroundings. If you notice something that might be out of the ordinary – something that you just want to let someone else know about – please don’t hesitate.
