As I sit down at work writing training material for my job.. I am listening to motivational speaking and the purpose of my life. I could not help but to reflect and think about what you considered to be your purpose. For 5 years you carried out your purpose and passion protecting others.

Dad, I miss you dearly. I respect you, I thank you and feel your presence each moment I live out my purpose helping others.
