THE BLINK OF AN EYE
The blink of an eye much faster than light the blink of an eye the
decision of life how quickly it travels how fast it must be to make
that decision either you or me.

There's no time for thinking it's all in high gear there's no time for
anger there's no time for fear in the blink of an eye it happens that
quick you never expect it it's over - that's it.

They train you for combat and so, so much more and with shield
and gun you head out to war. You protect and you serve and you
work to your best and hope that you never enter the enemy's nest
but should you do so and the ambush begins the guns must be
drawn and the blue shirts must win.

In the blink of an eye the decision is made to go home at night or
be placed in the grave. It will be judged by many who have never
been there. For they don't understand the burden we bear. They'll
pick and they'll question just how this was done. In the blink of an
eye he used his gun.

I'll tell you my brothers and sisters just blink your eyes, it takes
just that long to be dead or alive. Should you happen to step into
the enemy's nest don't blink your eyes just let God do the rest.

Although I never met you, I feel as if we have a connection. I remember this night very well as it was a full moon as I headed out on friday the 24th at 2300 hours for DWI patrol. I too was in a vehicle pursuit with a drunk driver/fugitive. I was nearly shot at the end of the pursuit as I approached the vehcile and a gun shots erupted. I have visited your memorial page numerous times and each time I pray for your friends and family. I personally know the sacrafice you made that September day. I feel I cheated death that day and know I am suppose to be along side of you on this memorial page
