FALLEN HERO

DAY 366_NYPD-5Day 369 (January 4, 2014) – Brooklyn, NY

I listened to a wife talk about the person she loved and the job that took him away from her. At times she cried uncontrollably and not even her family and friends could console her. His father spoke with a voice that quivered as each word painfully rolled off his lips.  You could see the pain in his eyes and the sorrow in his heart. Parents aren’t suppose to bury their children.  He wanted to know why. Why did they take his son.  Everyone wanted to know why.  Why take innocent lives? Why make a family have to go through a lifetime of pain?  Over 20,000 cops stood silently grieving for the loss of a brother in blue.  They came from all over the country to pay respect and to show solidarity.  They came because they know that one day it could be them…..and we still won’t know why.
