In Afghanistan, we patrolled in big, armored trucks. We wore uniforms that conveyed the message, “We are a military force, and we are in control right now.” Many Afghans saw us as occupiers.
And now we see some of our police officers in this same way. “The militarization of law enforcement is counter-productive to domestic policing and needs to stop,” tweeted Andrew Exum, a former Army infantry officer.

Okay, so talking about yourself positively is difficult because it feels like bragging, but I love Fran, and also, it’s important to love yourself, so here goes:
1) I enjoy giving to others and my community
2) I’m an engaged citizen
3) I’m kind to animals
4) I’m a dedicated person
5) I’m a loyal friend
OKAY. That’s it! Thank you, Fran. You’re the best. :)
