Hours and hours of tedium and boredom with an occasional dose of monotony. Day after day. Week after week. Month after month. Then...Good training, good instincts, willingness to go in harm’s way = prevention of what could have been more shootings. All those IDs checked, all those people who stop to ask questions, just another day on gate duty, and in the moment that counted, she knew her duty and didn’t hesitate. Glad she had the watch.
Fingers crossed for a meritorious promotion and some chest candy, post-investigation, if the facts merit it.
