Hello everyone and welcome back to another episode of Within the Trenches. This will be the last episode in a series recorded at the 2015 Indiana NENA/APCO conference and expo a few weeks ago. I had a great time there and I hope everyone who was on the show or attended my class enjoyed it too. I met a lot of new people, visited with good friends and just had an all around good time. There is never a dull moment with the crew from Indiana.
In this episode I got the chance to speak with Lindsey, dispatcher with Fulton County 911 and her mom Lori, training coordinator with INdigital and former PSAP director. This episode was a lot of fun to record. It was the first time that I have ever had a mother/daughter episode and they hit one out of the park.
This is a must listen so check it out and share. As always if you have any questions or would like to be a guest on the show, you can send an email to email@example.com.

Ah young love. Do you remember your first love? Do you remember your first love note? If your first love note was around elementary or within middle school you probably received a straight up “I love you” note or a “Do you like me? Circle yes or no.” It’s interesting how even at a very young age we seek acceptance for what we believe is love. I suppose it is called puppy love, the beginning of the butterflies, and the time when you are in “like” with someone because you are too young to know the difference.
I speak of this because I am currently fascinated with what my seven year son Logan is experiencing in 1st grade. A few weeks ago my wife and I walked to pick him up from school. On our way back two girls rolled up next to Logan on their scooters. The younger of the two, who will be named Jean Grey, said hello to Logan and they took part in a small conversation. Jean’s older sister went ahead and called for Jean and she left but made sure to say good-bye to Logan. As she went ahead I noticed her looking back and smiling at him. I told my wife and we both watched as she continued to look back. It seemed as though she had a crush but how could this six year old girl have a crush? How would she know what this is?
A week later I received a text message from my wife with a picture of a love note that was given to Logan by Jean. It said, “I love you” and “True Love”. I naturally thought, “That’s my boy” but I also thought about how amazing this interaction was. What exactly does this feel like to her or Logan? Is it butterflies or do they just think each other is cool? Whatever it is, I think it’s interesting and refreshing. We have all been there with our first love note and first love. Hopefully this story takes you down your own memories of, “Do you like me? Circle yes or no.”Post Views: 189
