Reflections for Corporal Joseph Raymond Pokorny, Jr.

The credit belongs to the one who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again, who knows the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if they fail, at least fails while daring greatly. So that their place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

My sympathies to Trooper Pokorney's family, friends and colleagues. The thin blue line gets thiner all the time due to senseless acts of violence and a general lack of respect for law enforcement. May God grant him eternal peace.
