Thomas Slatin Quote


“Whenever I went to work, I promised my family that no matter what happened at work, I would come home safely after my shift. Also, if the unthinkable happened and I didn’t survive, I wanted to be remembered not for the way in which I died, but instead, how I lived.” —Thomas Slatin

  1. That’s a beautiful way to put it. Personally, I couldn’t imagine having a job where my life was at risk every day, but I have tremendous respect for those who do the work to keep the rest of us safe. So thank you, and I’m so happy that you made it home every time.

    • Thank you, Suzanne! Unfortunately, I know of a handful of people whom I worked with who weren’t so lucky. I think about those people at least ten minutes out of every day.
