Patrolman Nielson, It's unfortunate that we risk our lives to save people that just don't want to be saved or wish harm on others, especially law enforcement. Your self-less act to save this person is a shining example of your character. Your sacrifice will not be forgotten. Rest Easy Brother !

Our Greatest Fear
Yet once again the Thin Blue Line is diminished,
an officer’s final tour of duty is finished.
"Officer down", it’s our greatest fear,
and once again, I hold back a tear.
They patrol in the state, city, county and town,
in uniforms colored white, green, blue and brown.
The shape of their badges may vary,
but it’s a symbol that they all, proudly carry.
They leave for work with a kiss goodbye,
but some don’t come home, no matter how hard they try.
To uphold the law is the job that they pick,
with such high aspirations, why must some die so quick?
They leave behind loved ones, family and friends,
after their lives have met tragic ends.
Some die in crashes, others hearts not too stout,
too many have been lost when gunshots ring out.
Our Heavenly Father has called them home,
no more these dark streets do they roam.
Through trial and error they have given their best,
please Lord, now grant them eternal rest.
Yet once again the Thin Blue Line is diminished,
an officer’s final tour of duty is finished.
" Officer down", it’s our greatest fear,
and once again I hold back a tear.

Thank you Patrolman Nielson for all of your services. God bless your family and your other brothers and sisters on the force. Keep watching over us, your time in hell is over. YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!!!!

No one who has ever worn the badge shall be forgotten, not as long as there is another to pin on a badge and carry on.
