A Thank You To Those Who Protect And Serve

Matt with Dad and Mom 2014

It is National Police Week.  It is during this time of year that we set aside a few minutes to show appreciation to all the great officers in our nation that serve and protect.  It is especially a time for us to honor our son Matt who has been a police officer for going on 20 years now.  We are proud of all of our children and their callings, but today we share how proud we are of Matt and his determination to fulfill his calling to protect and serve as best he can in a world filled with brokenness.  

Thank you Matt for wearing your badge with honor and integrity.  Thank you to his partner Michelle and friend Steve who do the same.  Thank you to all officers who serve well, making difficult decisions every day while hoping to go home to their family at the end of their shifts. Thank you.

Wonderfully said, Renee.
I'm encouraged to see the tide of public sentiment turning in support of our nation's peace officers. I could certainly never emulate their courage ... and their patience!
