Twitter Provides Online Place for People to Thank Police Officer Kim Munley

Reprinted from a blog post of Phyllis Zimbler Miller as a National Internet Business Examiner.

The November 7-8 Wall Street Journal’s page-one story about the shooting at Fort Hood included this sentence in the section on Kim Munley’s courageous efforts to stop the shooter:

“Her Twitter account filled with messages of thanks and admiration from strangers world-wide.”

Kim Munley’s username on Twitter is @hope2forget30, and besides her name and location (Killeen, TX), here’s what she wrote in her bio:

“I live a good life....a hard one, but I go to sleep peacefully @ night knowing that I may have made a difference in someone's life.”

When I checked she had only tweeted three times, the last time July 6th. How prescient that bio was – “knowing that I may have made a difference in someone’s life.”

I searched on @hope2forget30 and found the messages. You can read them yourself.

And you can also read the tweets about her by name if you search on Kim Munley.

In conclusion, we can all be thankful that she has indeed “made a difference in someone’s life.”

FYI – If you are on Twitter and would like me to add you to my Twitter list of U.S. troops supporters (@ZimblerMiller/us-troops-supporters) please tweet me. And you can also check out my site
