I stopped by the memorial with my family last Saturday night, after having worked several protest events that week. I asked my wife and kids to look at the plaque and I described to them what happened that night.

I was working as a Sergeant in Southeast that night, we looked and looked for the truck that night.

Never will I forget the scene and the hospital. It reminds me that life is meant to be lived to its fullest and that we are to serve with diligence, and to get into harms way, to run into harms way as both of you did, so others can live in some sort of peace.

Thank You for setting the tone for us to follow, my brothers.
