    How refreshing to read this article this morning. You, Tom Linton, are absolutely correct - they are unsung heroes! Last Saturday at 3am in the morning, i was ever so grateful for a 911 Operator - what professionalism - what a calming nature - thank you 911! Being the victim of a home invasion (yes, when you're home), and hearing your husband fighting with the perp is not an experience i'd wish on anyone, however, having a competent 911 operator on the line, rest assured, will get the job done; minutes later, we had a team of Galveston's Finest at our front door to the rescue. Bless you one and all 911 Operators, bless you! Thank you ever so much. I only wish i knew your name - for i'd send you flowers on your next shift.
