One day can make a difference

It takes truly unique and selfless heroes to put their lives on the line every day for people they don’t know. Sean Collier, a 26-year-old MIT police officer, was killed in a late night encounter with the two terrorists behind the tragic Boston Marathon bombing. Soon after his death, Sean’s brother, Andrew, appealed to Congress to create National First Responders Day. Unfortunately, the bill, H.R. 4109, introduced by his congressman, Michael Capuano, failed to pass. And, so began Andrew’s fight to create National First Responders Day.

There have been numerous unsuccessful attempts to get Washington to set politics aside and do the right thing. Congressman Capuano has reintroduced Andrew and Sean’s legislation, and now is the time for all Americans to come together behind one campaign to create one day for all First Responders. One day of gratitude. One day to call their own.
