So I've been sitting here... Just writing random stuff. And I started thinking about who my biggest heroes are. Cristy Sue, I miss you so much.. I really wish you were here so I could tell you that you are truely one of my biggest heroes. It hurts to think that you have been gone so long, but I always think of you, and sometimes I feel like you are standing there by me.. It's been a long time since I've heard your voice.. But I still remember it well. I know you're watching over everyone, helping out and keeping us safe. Don't get into any trouble and keep my Papa in check, :P No playing pranks! I love you Cristy Sue, Forever in my heart<3

You were highlighted on this website tonite. I remember your face, but after
reading all your reflections, I realize I never left a message. It's been 3+ years, but I know from all the warm, heartfelt messages here that you bonded with everyone who knew you. You had a passion for the job that inspired everyone else and it is so hard to understand why your time was up. It's nice to see you in your navy uniform with that red and white background. Thanks for serving your fellow Americans with such enthusiasm and dedication. Your memory is cherished.

"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.
