Salute Our First Responders

Today at the Ohio State football game at the Ohio Stadium, there was a moment of silence in tribute to those who had died on September 11, 2001.  It was also mentioned that we should honor those first responders who risk their lives for us everyday.  Members of the Highway Patrol, Police, Firefighters, EMS squad members, and others stood and were recognized for their service and dedication.

*** It was quite evident that there were some special guests watching today's football game.  There were several nuns were present in the press box at Ohio Stadium.  I'm guessing these were the Little Sisters of the Poor who've become BFF's of OSU President Gordon Gee (see New York Times).  Considering the game, I'm hopeful that the Sisters prayed for divine help for the Buckeye win.
