In Honor of your Sacrifice and for your family and friends, I salute you as a HERO!

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whose blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

I'm very sorry for the loss of Agent Terry. If incidents like this deeply affect all brothers and sisters of the law enforcement community, this has to be extremely difficult for his family and close co-workers. I never had the privilege of meeting Agent Terry, but there is no doubt in my mind he was a unique, selfless, brave, and inspiring individual with a heart of gold! I thank you Agent Terry for your service and dedication to our nation. My deepest condolences go out to your family and closest co-workers.

My thoughts are with all of your loved ones and close friends during this very trying time. I salute you for your courage and determination in guarding our borders even though we have others in this country that are lax in support for you and your co workers. My son was killed by an illegal alien so I have the bitterness still in my heart for a country he protected. Keep watch over your loved ones and protect them from harm. You are a true hero.
