Tommy & Peter, we're days away from Anniversary #20 of the terrorist ATTACKS on our Nation and the of so many brothers and sisters that occured on the same day.

Just as the terrorist attacks of that day, 20 years later, continue to kill so many innocents, the U.S.A. should continue to hunt down and eliminate the threat still posed by those wishing us harm.


Until we meet again...

On this anniversary of 9/11, I thank you for your sacrifice. Your service to NY and to your fine city is greatly appreciated. As one former tactical team member to another, I know you were never hesitated to rush into the fray to save others . Sorry your brother didn't make it. You obviously came from a great family--they must all be so proud as we are. What you and others did that day will never be forgotten. I've been to the 9/11 Memorial in NY and always think about you guys and what you and others did that day.

Today in Troy Ohio I attended a Memorial Freedom Climb honoring all of the first responders where we asend and desend the stairs of the stadium 64 times for a total 1980 steps which equals the height of the twin towers. I had the honor of drawing your picture and wearing it around my neck while I climbed. Thank you for your service to our country and that YOU will never be forgotten and we will never forget 9/11❤

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.
