Reflections for Detective Wenjian Liu

Feel His presence as God answers the prayers of many who have fallen to their knees on your behalf. Since the day of my son's death, I have carried every law enforcement officer and their family in my heart.

Every morning I go to my knees. During that time I pray:

“Lord, Be with all law enforcement officers. Keep them safe and free from harm. They are Your soldiers on the front line of the battle against evil. If one should fall this day - wrap their family in your loving arms. Surround them with Your angels, loving family, friends, neighbors and caring people to comfort them. Ease their pain. Help them to mourn well. In Jesus' name and for Your Glory, Amen.”

I have lifted you and your family to God every morning for over three years. Feel those prayers. God is with you; He knows and will ease your pain.

Our faith helps us to see beyond the grave.

THEIR SACRIFICE IS TREMENDOUS, AND IF THEY COULD, THEY WOULD TELL US

"I have laid down my life in service to all of you.
I have been a part of the fabric that has held the line between your safety and your victimization. I have given my life so that others may live in peace. I have lived my life as a dedicated member of the greatest profession. There is no greater honor.

As I now become a part of the rich history of law enforcement, please remember me always for I have left behind those who loved and depended upon me.
My partners and my agency, please remember my family, their loss, and don’t let time soften your compassion for them.

You guard the gate now and I will continue my watch from above."

MAY YOU REST IN PEACE AND MAY YOUR FAMILY FIND COMFORT IN THE GOOD YOU HAVE DONE HERE ON EARTH. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE TO US ALL.

TO THE FAMILY, FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES OF NEW YORK CITY POLICE DEPARTMENT, POLICE OFFICER WENJIAN LIU.

My heart is filled with great sadness at learning of the lost of your loved one and fellow Officer.
We in the Law Enforcement Community are a family, though we may wear different uniforms and have different badges, shields or stars pinned upon our chest.
Our area of enforcement may vary, we consist of many different agencies from across the nation, for we are :
Municipal Police Officers, Sheriff's Deputies, State Police Investigators, State Highway Patrol Troopers, Conservation Officers, Correctional Officers and Federal Agents just to name a few.
We patrol small towns, large cities, county roads, state highways, state parks and the United States Borders.
Whether active duty or retired, we are one family, a Law Enforcement Family, brothers and sisters bonded together by HONOR, SERVICE and PRIDE.
Daily we honor our fallen brothers and sisters never forgetting their sacrifice.
Daily our position is clear that we will SERVE and PROTECT our communities without faltering and with no hesitation.
Daily we show pride in our chosen profession LAW ENFORCEMENT, for we willingly walk the line of GOOD over EVIL facing the unknown with COURAGE keeping our trust and faith in GOD.
We know that evil roam these streets and at any moment in the course of performing our duties the ultimate sacrifice might be required of us in the service to our community, for LAW ENFORCEMENT is not a job but a calling and only a few will make the decision to commit to that calling to serve for some will give all that they have.
OFFICER LIU!
You did not die in vain
You sacrificed your life in the service to the citizens of New York City in the State of New York with HONOR, PRIDE and DISTINCTION.
I'm proud to have worn the uniform of a Law Enforcement Officer like you did.
I'm proud to have pinned the badge upon my chest like you did.
I'm proud to have SERVED and PROTECTED my community as you did.
I'm proud to call you my BROTHER!
I commend you my fallen Brother for making the ultimate sacrifice in the performance of your duty.
For you left us doing what you chose to do.
Performing a job you were trained to do.
Upholding the oath you swore to do.
Most importantly doing what you loved to do ........SERVING
and PROTECTING your community with HONOR and PRIDE making a better and safer place for us all.

FINAL CALL
Officer Liu status...................Officer Liu status.................
Officer Liu status.................Attention All Units.................
New York City Police Department, Police Officer Wenjian Liu having served the citizens of New York City in the State of New York with HONOR, PRIDE and DISTINCTION IS NOW 10-42.
Rest IN Peace my fallen Brother, YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!!

RIP Brother, the Thin Blue Line has gotten a little thinner today. Know that those of us in Blue have your back, and will watch over your family. Although, it seems our nation is divided they are a small minority. The majority knows what we all do and the sacrifices we have given up for them. Rest easy my brother, we will take it from here.
