Safe

Sleep tight tonight -- you are safe.

In our family we call Papa Joe -- Captain Safety.
It all started at Chenoweth Elementary School where he was made a lieutenant of the Safety Patrol.
In fourth grade when he slipped into that sash with the badge on it he took on the mantle of ultimate responsibility and he feels it to today. We never have to worry about the bad guys or imminent danger. The Captain is ready to spring into action at the slightest indication of threat.
We all just accept that he on duty and we are safe.
What a luxury in a surprise a minute world. It leaves the rest of the family free to explore and celebrate.
He may not be the guy with the lampshade on his head at the party but we are that smiling family in the corner. We're free to have FUN because we know we are


Safe!
