Local Heroes Save The Day After No One Shows Up To Kid’s Birthday Party

When no one showed up to Graham Day’s eighth birthday party, the local police and fire departments in Hurst, Texas, surprised him and saved the day.

Although no one had responded to Jennifer Day and her husband’s invitations, they hoped for the best and baked cakes and bought pizza. But no one showed up to celebrate with their son, Graham.

“It happened once before, but this time something snapped in me and it was like no, this is not happening to him again,” Day told Dallas News.

She and her husband drove to the Hurst Police Department and asked whether an officer might come see her son, who has always wanted to be a policeman.

The station’s entire shift showed up at her front door — with a few Hurst firefighters, too.

“Something like this, it literally guts you as a parent because you can’t fix it, at least in that moment,” she said through tears. “But the Hurst Police Department and the Hurst Fire Department, they went above and beyond and made his day.”

Happy Memorial Day

Calendar-When-Is-Memorial-Day-2015-Celebrated-Date-In-USA-UK-India-AustraliaMemorial Day is America’s unofficial kickoff to summer, but it’s also a day to remember those who’ve given their lives in service to our country.

Memory itself is a funny thing. It’s not always reliable, and it can color our lives in ways we don’t even realize. However, remembering our collective past–and especially those who gave up their futures so that we could enjoy our present–is very important.

Our Thanks to those who serve. As we celebrate our liberty and freedoms here at The Temp Connection, we remember and support those who protect them.

Happy Memorial Day! Have a safe weekend!

 

Job Spotlight: Trauma Surgeon

ortho-trauma
Trauma surgeons generally work in and around the emergency rooms of hospitals, including both emergency departments and operating rooms. When an individual suffers a sudden injury, these surgeons are tasked with treating them and preventing injuries from worsening.

This can be a stressful position in a fast-paced environment, so it is important to be able to stay focused and work well under pressure. In addition to performing and overseeing operations, trauma surgeons also play a role in maintaining patients’ vital signs as they recover and occasionally making diagnoses to determine what sort of treatment, or referral to another specialist, is necessary. They also perform various exams and consultations.

Trauma Surgeon Salary

Trauma Surgeons in the United States can look forward to a sizeable six-figure salary — around $311K per year on average. Career length is the biggest factor affecting pay for this group, followed by geography. The majority of Trauma Surgeons (64 percent) who took the survey are women. Work is enjoyable for Trauma Surgeons, who typically claim high levels of job satisfaction. Medical benefits are awarded to nearly all, and a strong majority earn dental coverage.
