I recently participated in the Texas Wheels of Justice Heroes Ride, riding in honor of Officer Tim Smith. I do this in support of the families of these fallen men and women and as a very small token of my humble appreciation. Though he has reached the end of his watch, his dedication and ultimate sacrifice will never be forgotten.
