The Thin Blue Line is tattooed on the heart of every officer's family member. It is real. It is powerful. It is a solemn community. It brings us pride. It brings us sorrow.
This time it has brought great great heart break to our close Mount Holly community. The blue house lights and all the yard signs have been glorious to see!
RIP Officer Herndon. I pray peace for your family.
