Reflections for School Safety Agent Vivian A. Samuels-Benjamin

Thank you for your many years of service, Agent Samuels. I was sad to read of such a senseless crime that was commited against you.
May the Lord comfort your family and friends at this difficult time.

Agent Samuels, As a former school officer I want to thank you for the many years of service to the youth of New York. Your job may have went unnoticed by others but not the kids! Thank you and rest in peace.

Law enforcement officers are, indeed, a special breed of people. Ask anyone on the street and they will tell you that they would not have our jobs for anything in the world. It takes something special to do what we do and at the same time be able to even contemplate retirement. We try to be optimists. Unfortunately, there are a few of us who will never make that date with retirement. By the very nature of our job, we are at risk everyday of losing our lives, either at the hand of some deranged individual or in some other situation that we, by virtue of our occupation, may be unable to avoid. Some people have recognized the hazardous duties we involve ourselves in, the risks we take, and the pride we take in accomplishing that job. There is National Law Enforcement Week, dedicated to us who gladly accept the responsibility of protecting the citizens in our respective jurisdictions. National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Day is dedicated to those who gave their lives in the line of duty. These are but two examples of remembrances specifically for law enforcement personnel. Remembrances that come but once a year. We should remind fellow officers of another type of remembrance, one that will last a lifetime. Sooner or later, a doctor will pronounce us dead. It is inevitable. Regardless of whatever happens, death is the end we will all have to face.

Rest in Peace, brave sister. You served your community well and have now earned your place in Paradise alongside the warriors of justice who were called Home before you. Keep watch over your family, co-workers and those children you were protecting in school each day. Help your sons to be strong through this Christmas and the tough days they face ahead. With each other, their family and their extended family of blue, may they find comfort in knowing that you are forever a HERO!

She was yours to give,
and yours to call home,
please stand by her brothers,
so they don't feel alone,
dry the tears of her family,
so they clearly see:
that she gave her all,
so all could have peace.
Blessed are they,
the children of God,
with heavy hearts,
and honor they trod,
to pay their respects,
to give their salute,
and to ask for your mercy,
on heroes in Blue.

Vivian, rest easy sister, we have the watch.
