September 11, 2009

Sgt. Roy,
Sir, on today the 8th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you to you and all your fellow LEO's who were also killed that day for your service and sacrifice for our Country. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

The anniversary of 9/11 is coming up in a few days as you well know. I just wanted you to know that you have not been forgotten. Rest in Peace...

I made a donation to the families of the victims of 9/11 through our church and received a bracelet with Tim Roy's name and occupation on it (called a prayer bracelet). At first I wore this bracelet every day for two years which reminded me every day to pray for his family and loved ones. Since then I keep the bracelet in my jewelry box to be taken out and worn for the week leading up to 9/11 each year as a reminder to pray again for the family of this TRUE AMERICAN AND HERO that God will comfort their hearts and give them piece and guidance in their lives. Part of my prayers for all of these years is that God would reveal to them his purpose for this trial in their lives and that they would see His love and feel the comfort of His arms around them. Maybe some day I will learn of this purpose, but maybe not, and I will just need to wait until I meet him in Heaven.
God's Blessings to the family and loved ones of Officer Timothy Roy and please know that until the day I die, every year, I will be praying for you. With Love in Christ, Jill Jamison

"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.

I did not know Sgt Roy went I sent away for the bracelet to benefit the widows and orphans,but he is who I got. Since then I have had the honor to read many things about him. I found him to be a good leader, and generally a stand up guy. From what I have read his absence has left quite a hole. I continue to wear his name on my wrist as a inspiration, that tells me, when things are tough there are people who will always be there to do what has to be done. And on "that day" Sgt Roy was one of those people. God Bless all who have followed in his chosen professtion, and God Bless his family and friends.

Dear Tim:
I write this reflection in your honor to keep the promise I made. The promise that each and every one of you who gave your all, will have a reflection from me. It is the least that I can do.
Uncommon valor...that is the best and only term I can think of to describe your actions on 11 September 2001. Not even fate could be a good definition. Fate would speak to little of your actions. No. You deliberately, with blatant disregard for your own safety, entered the Tower in an attempt to save lives. That Sir, is Uncommon Valor. That Sir, is what a police officer is all about.
Your actions speak not only well of you, and the rest of the NYPD, or police officers everywhere, but of the wonderful upbringing your received from your family, to give your life to save another. That, Sir, is not only valor, it is holy. For it is described in the Bible: "Man knows greater love, than he who lays down his life for another". And for that, I am certain that you are with our Father in Heaven.
Words can never repay you or your family for the sacrifice you made. But what we can and must do, is to remind our fellow Americans, and our politicians in Washington, that our freedom comes at high price,not only on the field of battle, but right here in the Homeland. And that our police officers are THE last line of defense for our countrymen.
Americans, by nature, have a way of not remembering the horror and the pain and the sacrifice of such a catastrophic event. But as long as God above gives me air in my lungs, I will ALWAYS remind Americans everywhere, of the type of person it took to do what you did that day...a person of Uncommon Valor. Rest in peace my brother, we have the watch. Amen

To the family and loved ones of Sergeant Timothy Roy and his fellow officers with the New York City Police Department and most especially to Timothy:

Mere words seem insignificant to honor your heroism and courage which will never be forgotten. On this the fifth anniversary month 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 Timothy gave to his community and country, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on September 11, 2001.

Across the ocean in my living room I watched a bereaved friend/relative/collegue of yours as peoples names were being read out in honour of their memory. I could tell he was overwhelmed and that you are sorely missed. On his T-Shirt read the words GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN and your name. I realised how true this is. I WILL always remember that moment,911,your sacrafice and heroism. You are remarkable.

Sarge,I met you only one time -at the Labor Day parade detail in mid town early Sept. 2001...I was assigned to you and when you gave out the instructions you gave us all your cell phone number if a problem arose.You epitimized the kind of supervisor that the line force respect and work the hardest for.You were and in my memory will always be a man of honor,and a credit to the NYPD. You will never be forgotten by me.
