There is a shadow a darkness that lurks between the thin line that divides good from evil. This darkness can only be walked by a select few those brave enough and able enough to withstand the pain and agony that comes along with walking that line. Venturing into this darkness changes you, alters you, and even creates an individual that can really no longer adjust to ever really living outside of it. This thin blue line is called many things, but once it changes you, once your blood turns blue, you can never go back. You can never leave its pull, it has become a part of your soul, your spirit. They can take the badge and the gun, but to take what it means to be a blue-blooded warrior they would need to rip the very heart from my chest and squeeze the blue blood out of it. Only then will the blue flame ever be extinguished. Because of this I hurt and grieve for my brother, and I would have gladly risked my life to have saved yours. I love you brother, Semper Fidelis, and rest easy my friend, your watch is over, job well done.
