Here’s a thank you to all of the police officers who strive each day to improve the quality of life for everyone in their communities. Your efforts don’t go unnoticed by the people who you serve. So, in honor of National Police Week, we want to say a special thank you to all of the police officers in our lives.
President Kennedy started National Police Week in 1962 as a way to honor the sacrifices that our police officers make to keep their communities safe. May 15th was set aside as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which it falls focuses on saluting all police officers.
This Mother’s Day, we want to honor the moms of our heroes, whether they are moms of firefighters, police officers, teachers, military service members, healthcare professionals, or EMS members.
Patients around the globe rely on the kindness, expertise, compassion and overall excellence of the world’s nurses. Nurses know that medical needs recognize no boundaries. They know that medical needs don’t differentiate between rich and poor. And they know that medical needs don’t align themselves with political parties. That is why the International Council of Nurses (ICN) chose the theme “Health Is a Human Right” for the 2018 International Nurses Day.
Military Spouses are Heroes, Too
Military Spouse Appreciation Day is held each year on the Friday before Mother’s Day. This year, it will be on May 11. We appreciate our military service members for the daily sacrifices they make to keep us safe. Equally important, we also need to show our appreciation for their spouses. Our military spouses make significant sacrifices as well. Often, raising their kids single-handedly while their spouse is away from home on deployment. Not only do they take care of their home and family by themselves, but they also deal with the stress of their loved ones being in danger and unknown situations. Take the time this Friday to show your appreciation for the sacrifices made by our military spouses.
What Is PMI?
PMI is private mortgage insurance that you pay as part of your monthly mortgage payment. You only have to pay PMI if you have less than a 20 percent down payment when you purchase your house. If you don’t have a 20 percent down payment, paying the mortgage insurance is what allows a lender to give you a loan. You are paying the extra cost to show you are not at risk of stopping your monthly payments.
