Reflections for Police Officer Paul Laszczynski

You as always are remembered

I met Paul in the Bergen County Police Acadamy when we were elected to the positions of President and Vice-President of the class. Paul really exemplified what a police office was all about. Big as he was, he was the type of person that would give you the shirt off his back. He never shirked from anything and always did things well. He was a great officer!
I can picture Paul standing near the exit of the tower and rushing people out saying: "This way......come on, this way.....you can do it....."
God seems to take to good one's from us. But, their memories and impact will last forever.

Officer Laszcynski appeared in court with me many times over the five years I served as a municipal prosecutor in Newark. I will never forget his face, his kindness, or his professionalism. And he, as all of the officers we regularly worked with in the Newark Municipal Court, will be missed. I offer blessings to his family as that terrible day approaches when he was taken too soon and, as with the others, in the service of the public. God bless and keep him close.

Dear Paul:
You faithfully kept your oath to "protect and serve", and now I keep mine...to honor you and your family with a reflection. Your actions, and that of the all the rest on 11 September 2001, I like to think of as "minutemen", the same title given over 200 years ago to those brave souls who, on a minute's notice, would respond to a threat.
They would meet the threat head-on, even at great peril to themselves, for freedom's sake. As a result of their tenacity, an evil foe and it's threat, were defeated, and a new nation was conceived. Sound familiar?
It should, because the sacrifices made for all Americans back then, is no more a sacrifice you all made for Americans, too. Our threat was met, and further attacks were avoided, because of your actions. Awakening peace loving Americans to the very real threat of terror. And your sacrifice was to enhance the freedom of your fellow Americans by rescueing some 25,000 innocent souls, permitting them to live without fear. And a new America was born...one which found resolve not "to go quiet into that good night".
The call came from a higher source, I truly believe, that fateful day, asking, "Whom shall I send?" And you answered, "Here I am, Lord". Thank you and may God bless you, your family, all my fallen brothers in blue, and as always, God Bless America. Godspeed, we have held our sacred blue line. Amen

To the family and loved ones of Officer Paul Laszczynski and his fellow officers with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Police Department and most especially to Paul:

Mere words seem insignificant to honor your heroism and courage which will never be forgotten. On this the fifth anniversary week of the tragic devastation wreaked upon our nation, those brave men and women who lost their lives safeguarding others are remembered and revered.

May your spirit continue to soar and your memory continue to inspire.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect and gratitude for the distinquished service Paul gave to his community and country, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on September 11, 2001.

There are but two persons who protect the sinful human race from destroying itself. One is God's Holy Spirit. The other is the Peace Officer. Without them, we would all perish at each other's hands.

You were called into this profession and our Lord and Savior has blessed you because:
According to Romans 13.1-5...
God ordains the Peace Officer’s profession.
The Peace Officer is sent by God.
The Peace Officer is vested with God's authority to enforce the law.
A Peace Officer's badge is to be honored by us, because God honors it.

You gave the ultimate sacrifice, your life for your fellow man, while serving, defending, and protecting others in your community.

Thank you for your service to America. Your efforts saved thousand that horrible day.
My thoughts and prayers go out to your family and friends. You will be in our hearts forever.

I tried to attend as many funerals as I could during these darkest of days as my way of showing respect to families and coworkers of all of my brother and sister Officers and Firefighters. I cannot find the words to say how sorry I am that we have lost these great heroes. I cannot express my thanks enough for your bravery and sacrifice. My prayers are with you and all of your families......................AC

On the Day you left us I did not know who you were. That terrible day I was recovering from knee surgery. But less than 5 weeks later I was asked to participate in a Memorial 5k run to honor fallen brothers. I was given your name to carry on my banner as I ran. I pray that your family is safe and I still carry the ribbon with me as well as in my heart. May God bless your loved ones....

My Prayers are with all the friends and family of all the officers who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.
I lost my brother tragically, Det. David Taylor, Greensboro PD, On August 7, 2001. I was in NY for my fiancee's Mother's funeral the first of Sept. I was stranded there for 3 weeks due to this atrocity. As I watched the events on TV, I cried for all those who lost their lives. But was especially emotional about the Police Officers and the Firefighters and their families, as I had just recently suffered a tragic loss myself. As I walked through the streets in the days following the attack, I cried with pride as I saw the officers on duty on all the corners in the city. I knew how hard it was for them, knowing they had lost their friends. On the Sat. following the attack I was at St. Patrick's for mass. The last 2 people to go up and take communion were 2 NYPD officers, again I cried. I hope all of you are getting the support that my family and I got when we needed it, from the Deparment. I know the comforting words and even the funny stories the officers tell us about my brother helps. I know that our loved ones who are gone from here, had a higher calling and are happy and at peace in Heaven. Hopefully we can all feel that same peace one day! God bless All of you! And God bless America!

God I don't know what to say. I intend to post this message for each and everyone of you heroes so Officer, Detective, Agent, Whatever,... I thank you. You swore to serve and to protect. Well your days of protecting us are over. But you will forever be in service. Your eternal service... the inspiration you and your fellow bothers and sisters have re-enforced in my heart, will live so long as I do. Though I will not always carry your name in the front of my mind, not in my duties as a soldier or as the police officer I plan to become when I get home, I will still always carry with me the knowledge of your sacrifice... of your heroism, of your selflessness... I will carry a samll piece of you everywhere I go. Be it with an M-16 in my hands in a strange land, or a badge on my chest in my own back yard... long after the flags come down and the nation carries on... until the day I die... you will continue to serve... as my inspiration. God bless you. God bless your family. God bless your agency. God bless FDNY. God bless all the soldiers, sailors, airmen, coast guardsmen, and marines. God bless New York City. GOD BLESS AMERICA. Thank you my brothers and sisters. I love you.
