Reflections for Police Officer Sean Clark



April 5, 2007

As I am sitting here watching Officer Clark's service on television, I am crying tears of sorrow and joy. What a wonderful police officer, husband, father, son and friend he must've been. But above all that, he was an outstanding Christian man. Thank you to all of those who shared at the service, not only the wonderful insight so that we could all know something about Sean, but also for sharing the plan of salvation so that even in this tragedy something good may come.
I am thankful that Sean's family has God to comfort them during this time. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you mourn the loss of Sean and also as you prepare to celebrate this new little baby boy who will soon be a part of your lives.

During my 32 years as a Police Officer, I never had the privilage to meet Officer Sean Clark. However, he was a brother. I just want the family to know that you are in my prayers. May God Bless and comfort you.

Though I never knew him, he was part of my Law Enforcement family and I will mourn this deep loss the rest of my life. My heart aches with all the losses we have suffered, and continue to suffer, through the years. God is our only peace through such incidents & our comfort is the reassurance that He will judge the guilty.

I am truly sorry for your loss. Your loss is felt all arount the nation not only in the police force but the military also.. My father was shot while he was a officer and my uncle passed just abit ago and he was a retired Chicago police officer. Being in the military I feel I have a special connection with all other service members... I hurt for you and I know that your husband is in a much better place now... God is watching over you as always and watching your childred... They will know how wonderful their father was... and what a great person he was too... Keep his legacy going. and I know his children will be proud... I am proud of all service members... My boyfriend is in the military and was sent over to Iraq. I am allways fearful of his life... and I just want you too keep your courage...and things will get easier with time. I am soooo very sorry once again.

Sherry, Brayden and your unborn baby boy...
As a fellow parent at Mini Academy, I would see Sean in the hallway picking Brayden up. He always seemed so proud and happy. My son would point at him and say "Brayden's Daddy is a Police Officer". Brayden's Daddy is a Hero.
Words cannot express how sad we, as parents, are for you and your little ones.

If I have fallen-
And did not wake-
Maybe it’s due to my mistake-
Maybe by chance I’ve stumbled across-
A Robbery, Shooting, or Fight-
That I have lost-
Paying the Ultimate Sacrifice-
I’m at peace with my Life-
So I Offer-
A note from an Officer!!!!

I’ll take this time to express-
That the love of my job-
Brings out my Best-
Never taking life for granted-
Never thinking of time for panic-
It all came so natural to me-
Now I have been set Free-
So I Offer-
A note from and Officer!!!!

I will never forget the tragedy that befell my brother. Though I did not know him I know he was goodness personified. I will soldier on, because that is all I can really do. To honor his memory, to show the world that his death was not in vain, to show all those who would do others harm that we will never stop. OURS is not a life of vengeance it is a life of righteousness and no matter the time or place, the circumstance or distance, WE will stand our ground, in the face of nameless enemies, to ensure that those who cannot help themselves are helped by us.

I am sorry your children will never see your smiling face again but in a photograph. They were robbed of knowing a good man. Everyone speaks so highly of you here in these reflections. This job is hard enough as a single person, but to be a father and put on your badge each day takes a special man - AND YOU WERE IT! Go with God and keep us all safe.

To the Clark Family -
I hope that you will all draw your strength from God in the coming days. Raise those two children to know that their father was a hero. Help them to not be bitter. Help them to understand their daddy died doing what he loved. Be there for them so that they are a credit to Sean.

When I heard the news Sunday my heart broke. I met Sean after I had retired from the department and was working at Healthsouth where he was having physical therapy for his knee. He was a very nice and charming young man. We talked a great deal about his dream to be a police officer. And he asked a lot of questions about the job. I tried to discourage him at first and told him what a tough job it had become and how very dangerous the streets of Charlotte really were but wouldn't budge. Then I told him what a good group of people wore the badge here and I gave him the name of a friend who worked in recruiting at the time. He was so determined and so proud to be an officer. His sons can be very proud of their Dad and know that he had earned the respect and friendship of his fellow officers. He will be missed greatly. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. I know his brothers and sisters in blue will carry on his work and carry his memory with them.
