Default Rally of support at LSL

Very proud to attend this day a rally in support of the First Responders of our nation, the many police officers and firefighters who put their lives on the line each day to keep us safe.
It was held at the town square, Lake Sumter Landing, The Villages, Florida (under sunny blue skies, of course). It was attended by many retired and active duty members of the New York City Police and Fire departments, by many retired veterans of our armed forces, and by many, many supportive Villagers.
Speeches by elected officials, Chiefs of various local law enforcement and fire departments and patriotic music were the order of the day.

Support law and order!
Teach our children respect, not hate.

Default Rally For First Responders

Many of us have put blue bulbs in our post lights to show support.
With the rallies of the low-life, scumbags calling to "kill cops now", there needs to be more mass rallies by the respectful, law abiding citizens throughout the country to show we care about these first responders and will not tolerate the race-baiters and criminal looters who seem to get way too much press. The majority needs to be heard loud, clear and NOW.

There were several threads on TOTV encouraging people to attend.
I saw a couple by Cha cha cha, and one by Graciegirl.

Very well put! God bless all of our police, military, 1st responders, volunteers and those who are always there to protect us. God Bless America!

My wife and I were there and appreciated the opportunity to support all those that support us. I was just thinking if we were a demonstration against something there would be more media covering it. This should have been covered by Ocala or Orlando and I did not see them but I hope they were there.

We are living in difficult times and I think these support rallies should occur all across the country.
