Bringing honor to a select group of people has been one of America’s finest traditions. No matter the event, the risk, the time or the hour, these Americans show up to help and to serve.
It is my greatest honor to have the privilege of sharing this week, the celebration of America’s finest with you.
Like any other position of power, there may be some who take advantage or abuse their positions, but there are far more who honor not only their position, but their service by stepping up to the plate and going above an beyond the call to meet the needs of their communities, and their neighbors.
A few years back, as a cadet my daughter was part of an investigation that happened in my hometown. Almost by proxy, I was on the sidelines of that investigation, a bystander, but more importantly – at least in my view – a support for those who struggled to maintain their strength through one of the most horrific events our community had ever endured. I watched grown men, trained for their jobs, show up for duty determined to serve their community, through tears of anguish at the experience they’d been through. Today, many of those officers have shifted to other jobs, other professions, unable to face the risk of that kind of horror ever again in their lives.
And yet, even though most of those officers have moved on to other communities, unable to drive past the house where such a horrific event took place, many still serve.
When asked “What is your biggest fear?”
Almost any officer of the law will tell you, the investigation of a child murdered at the hand of a parent.
To this day, I’ve never heard any of those officers say a single negative word against the mentally ill parent who took the lives of her children. Their compassion for another human being has been above and beyond the call of duty. I commend them. I commend any officer who steps up and serves his/her community.
It is an honor to honor those in blue who serve.
Thank you to each and every one of you!
