Thank a local firefighter or police officer.

While office workers rushed out of burning buildings during the disasters of Sept. 11, 2001, firefighters rushed in. That's the job of America's heroes. Take this opportunity of national spirit and unity to thank a local firefighter, or a local police officer. It's easy to personalize your greeting, and print out as many cards as you wish.

Select the type of card you'd like to send. Then select the sample text and type a message. If you prefer to hand-write your message, highlight and delete the sample text.

Print the page and fold it into quarters. (If cropping occurs, select the shrink-to-fit option for your printer.)
