Reflections for Police Officer Bryan Scott Hurst

Supporting the procession through Westerville brought back so many memories of the day you saved my life. I know you are with the two police officers in a heavenly place. I will never ever stop thinking about what you did for us! I wish we had a different outcome. I pray that these people understand that we need the police and they are great people.
Praying for all of your brothers and sisters in blue this week!
