Reflections for Police Officer Sean Robert Clark


If I have fallen-
And did not wake-
Maybe it’s due to my mistake-
Maybe by chance I’ve stumbled across-
A Robbery, Shooting, or Fight-
That I have lost-
Paying the Ultimate Sacrifice-
I’m at peace with my Life-
So I Offer-
A note from an Officer!!!!

I’ll take this time to express-
That the love of my job-
Brings out my Best-
Never taking life for granted-
Never thinking of time for panic-
It all came so natural to me-
Now I have been set Free-
So I Offer-
A note from and Officer!!!!

I will never forget the tragedy that befell my brother. Though I did not know him I know he was goodness personified. I will soldier on, because that is all I can really do. To honor his memory, to show the world that his death was not in vain, to show all those who would do others harm that we will never stop. OURS is not a life of vengeance it is a life of righteousness and no matter the time or place, the circumstance or distance, WE will stand our ground, in the face of nameless enemies, to ensure that those who cannot help themselves are helped by us.

I am sorry your children will never see your smiling face again but in a photograph. They were robbed of knowing a good man. Everyone speaks so highly of you here in these reflections. This job is hard enough as a single person, but to be a father and put on your badge each day takes a special man - AND YOU WERE IT! Go with God and keep us all safe.

To the Clark Family -
I hope that you will all draw your strength from God in the coming days. Raise those two children to know that their father was a hero. Help them to not be bitter. Help them to understand their daddy died doing what he loved. Be there for them so that they are a credit to Sean.

When I heard the news Sunday my heart broke. I met Sean after I had retired from the department and was working at Healthsouth where he was having physical therapy for his knee. He was a very nice and charming young man. We talked a great deal about his dream to be a police officer. And he asked a lot of questions about the job. I tried to discourage him at first and told him what a tough job it had become and how very dangerous the streets of Charlotte really were but wouldn't budge. Then I told him what a good group of people wore the badge here and I gave him the name of a friend who worked in recruiting at the time. He was so determined and so proud to be an officer. His sons can be very proud of their Dad and know that he had earned the respect and friendship of his fellow officers. He will be missed greatly. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. I know his brothers and sisters in blue will carry on his work and carry his memory with them.

May God grant Officer Clark's family the peace that comes with knowing him and knowing that he is finally at peace with Jesus. I did not know Off.

I will continue to pray for him and his family as well as God's blessings on the LE community that will contiue to suuport his family.

Sean had only been an officer for a year but his age, up bringing, faith, and family made him a true man. I met Sean while teaching him in the academy and he struck me as an individual who had become an officer for all the right reasons. The last time I spoke to Sean was when he pulled me over in my unmarked police car and we chatted for nearly 20 minutes about his district and his family. I only wish we would have spoken longer.

May God bless his family and keep his hand of protection on his wife, 2 year old and future child.

Until we meet again, you and your family will always be in my thoughts and prayers.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not're coming here to me.
