I spent the day yesterday, mostly guarding the fort. I was assigned to the Radio/Communications detail at the Festival, but nevertheless, the job was significant. In the Radio Room, we kept tabs of the equipment, listened to the security line, and communicated with the security leader as to where to send the security volunteers to be deployed as needed. Since there was a large area for children, the information dealing with lost children was of particular interest . I made it a point to keep tabs on the missing children's reports and descriptions, and pray for their location and their being found. It was very rewarding and gratifying for the whole security team whenever a child was reunited with their parents. I wouldn't mind doing that work again.
Unfortunately, my friend Maria, didn't have that great of an experience. She was selling tickets for the food sales and the lines were endless and it was hot outside (86-90 degrees), and she didn't get the break she needed on time. By the time she was released her back was killing her, and she almost had a meltdown, since she hadn't had anything to eat nor a bathroom break. She isn't planning to go back today. =( It's understandable.
On an other note, today is first day of Day Light Savings and it is going to be a great day! Just set those clocks ahead one hour. God bless you all.
