Reflections for Sergeant Robert Francis Wilson, III

I may not have ever met you, but I miss you every day. You're a true hero, a cop's cop, an amazing father, and a person I wish I had known in life. I know we will meet in Valhalla. Rest easy brother.

"The Final Inspection"

The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.

"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"

The policeman squared his shoulders and said,
"No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges
can't always be a saint.

I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.

But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.

And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.

If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.

There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.

"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."

Tomorrow I join hundreds of other riders cycling 250 miles from Chesapeake, VA into Washington DC for Police Week. On my wrist I wear a bracelet in honor of your husband and father. I hope to see you there and learn more about your hero, and present to you his flag. May God bless your family.

Brother we have the same last name and are Brothers by bond, so sorry they were lucky and you were not.
Many of us go into deadly exchanges and come out with a few cuts, bites, wounds and broken bones and in time we pick each other up laugh and joke about it and go back to the job and then one day IT happens and then there is nothing to laugh about.
So sorry fella.

2 Timothy 3:1 says that we are living in "critical times" times. Many in the world (like the two suspects who took Officer Wilson's life), don't follow the command given by God at Romans 13:1 "Let every person be in subjection to the superior authorities, for there is no authority except by God, the existing authorities stand placed in their relative positions by God." My heart goes out to Officer's Wilson wife, children, friends, and colleagues. May God's promise recorded at Revelation 21:3,4 bring you comfort "he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." You are in my prayers

"Blue Spirited Watch"

Even though the many Law Enforcement Officers from all of our Neighboring Countries around this world have Fallen and Ended their Watch.

Their Devoted Spirits have Risen and are now carrying on their destinies up above in Heaven while awaiting to be rejoined in the distant future by the ones they love.

I know this is late... but you Officer Wilson are my idle. You made the ultimate sacrifice. You kid's birthday was days away. He may not be able to see you again.... but he can say that... "My dad saved a building full of lives. My dad gave his life for others. Man my dad was great." You are a hero, a true man that has inspired people like me. You did the right thing Officer Wilson.

Today a police officer was killed a protector of the peace a guardian against the evil in which lurks in this world. This protector of the peace shall never be forgotten for he is a hero and forever will live in the thoughts and minds of those he protected and loved.

I never quite understood the saying "the good die young" until my father and friends were taken from this world way to soon as was Officer Wilson as he gave his life protecting others not for any other reason than it was the right thing to do.. I thank you for your sacrafice and my heart will be with your family through the difficult times ahead watch over them for i know to well the times they now face

"In the simple performance of duty,
he answered the call
to help the helpless, to find the lost,
no matter the danger or how great the cost.

In the simple performance of duty,
he lay down his life,
for those in peril he tried to save,
our brave friend went to his grave."

Rest in peace Ofc. Wilson. Thank you endlessly for your service.
