My beautiful sister.
This one hit hard. And so close to home. Because it is the community where my husband grew up, where our extended family still lives. Because our son is an officer in an adjacent community. And our nephew (soon to become an officer) trained in the junior academy with the same department … the same band of brothers who lost those two seasoned officers last Saturday. They were just doing what they do every day, responded to a 911 call. Serving the public.
Then they were ambushed. And so were our hearts.
Hate-filled crime is senseless. Paralyzing.
I can’t even look at the photo of the killer. I’m battling so much anger.
Every day since Saturday, our hearts break a little more.
I can’t sleep, thinking of those wives left behind. And their babies. Who will take them to daddy/daughter dances? Who will walk them down the aisle on their wedding…
