Reflections for Lieutenant Michael Elvin Walker

My deepest sympathy goes to the family and friends of Lieutenant Michael Walker. They are in my prayers.
May they keep or find faith in God to help them thru this tragedy.


Reality

Imagine how our world would be
If every police officer quit
Turned in their gun, turned in their badge,
Just finally had enough of it.

No respect, no loyalty,
No appreciation of all they do,
They’d give their lives for all of us,
These wonderful officers of “Blue”.

Kicked at, spit on,
Punched, stabbed and shot,
Everyday assaults on officers,
Done…without thinking a second thought!

Our laws are in favor of criminals,
There’s always some loophole in their case,
Out again to commit more crimes and murders
…creates pain, that we, the family and friends
…in time will never erase.

Why should they do it?
Why take the risk?
Why put their life on the line?
Subject their loved ones to endless suffering,
When their precious life is lost while fighting crime.

More murders, more kidnappings, more robberies and rapes,
Just to mention a few,
Please ask yourself how life would be,
If there were NO officers in Blue!

Would you do it? Could you do it?
And for how many…would YOU give it all?
Rewards are a 21 gun salute, a Medal of Honor,
And your name gets added to the Wall.

Think about it. Why are they here?
And why do some hate them so?
Because they enforce the laws that put convicts and murderers
In jail serving time, or on “Death Row”.

All give some and some give all,
It’s a risk they chose to take:
To put their heart and soul in it,
To put their lives at stake.

So, please take a moment,
Please give it deep thought,
Think of what “you can do”…

To help show respect,
To help follow the laws,
So we’d quit losing our Heroes in Blue!

I prayed last night that 2006 would arrive without any additional line of duty deaths - words cannot express the sadness I felt when I read of this today. Please accept my sincere heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and fellow officers of Lieutenant Walker.

Mrs. Walker, my husband was killed in the line of duty 9 months ago. Please know that you will get through this, although you may not believe it right now. Your husband was a hero and gave the ultimate sacrifice - now he is an angel looking down on you and your daughters. He will embrace you, and will help guide you on this very painful journey you have just begun. Your heart won't always hurt the way it does today - the pain will soften with time. Hold on to your family and friends and believe that your wonderful husband will be with you every minute of every day, just as mine is.

God bless you, Lieutenant Walker. Rest in peace, Blue Angel.
