Our community is today mourning the loss of a very
brave & noble police officer, who died in the line
of duty on Monday evening, senselessly gunned
down by an individual who was being questioned.
Leaving behind a wife & two small boys, his loyal
work kept our citizens safe but cost him his life. To
honor his life & his commitment, the city is being
covered in blue ~ blue lights & blue ribbons all over.
After word spread of his death, families began sharing
the news & porch lights started to light up the night
sky. We joined in last night & it was so comforting
to see our neighbors all around participating as well.
Tonight, our light will burn again, all evening long,
into the morning light. I'm searching for blue ribbon
& have plans to place them on our trees & our front
column. Blue, like the pyramids lit up in the picture,
will be a focus for weeks to come, as we all take time
to remember a hero & honor his colleagues but most
especially his grieving family. If you have a moment
today, light a candle or wear blue. Share the love!
