Great honor and appreciation to our protectors, past - present & future!

I just attended a ceremony called "Public Defenders Appreciation Day" in Grandville, MI where 30-40 officers attended representing 15 departments from the Western Michigan area. We raised our voices showing our love, appreciation, and prayers for all our protectors. Every time I hear a siren, I stop and say a prayer asking God to release angel armies to go before you, with you, and after you.

I thank you and I thank your families.
