Border Patrol Honor Ride

April 16th, 2012

4-16-12One of the most thankless jobs in the United States is being a Border Patrol agent along our southern border. These men and women who put themselves in harm’s way every day come home to people in the neighborhood who aren’t the most embracing.
Since I am so close to the Tucson Sector, I felt I must ride to honor these Heroes. Far too many agents have given their lives doing their jobs protecting our liberties and freedom.
I called Border Patrol Agent Mario Escalante who is the Public Affairs Officer at the Tucson Sector, he invited me to talk with him during my ride. I have to admit that The Kindness Bus looked a bit out of place amongst all the Border Patrol vehicles. I did get a couple of double takes as I drove through the parking lot.
Mario praised me for raising awareness about Heroes to schoolchildren across the country. This always happens when I talk with Heroes, meet with them to express my gratitude and they end up thanking me.
Thank you to all Border Patrol Agents around our country.
