Reflections for Senior Investigator Fred Ghussin




February 5, 2008

My prayers are with the Ghussin family and I thank them for sharing Fred with all of us.
I have been attending the Memorial in Washington DC every year since 1988, and I never thought that we would have a LOD death from our job - there's only 300 of us throughout NYC. My visit to DC this year will be a very special one for me, and I invite and urge all DA Investigators in NYC to make it a point to come to DC to honor Fred's memory and to be there for his family.

When 9/11 struck the world, I was a rookie. I listened to the radio reports of those killed at the time. It was the first day that I understood what it meant to be a part of the brotherhood that is Policing.

It saddens me deeply to hear that we are still losing brave heros from that tragic day.

Prayers and thoughts sent for Senior Invesitgator GHUSSIN, family, friends and colleagues of all those that suffered from that terrible day.

Your presence in God's heavenly law enforcement community will long be noted by those you have left behind. Know you no longer face the struggles against evil but are now facing the eternal peace and love with all our brothers and sisters who have made the ultimate sacrifice and are Gods chosen officers in His badge of honor. Rest in peace, may our Father bring comfort and peace to all your family.

On 9/11 as thousands of people ran from the Twin Towers You and the Men and Women of Law Enforcement and Fire and Rescue ran in. You were heroes then as you are now. No one could imagine what you endured in that time, or knew that years later you too would be a victim of those cowardly terrorists.. May you have peace and my thoughts and prayers go out to your family and friends.

To the family, friends, and officers that knew SI Ghussin, my thoughts and prayers are with you as you face the trying times ahead of you. Please know your not alone.

Here I am, lost in the light of the moon that comes through my window
Bathed in blue, the walls of my memory divide the thorns from the roses
It's you and the roses

Touch me and I will follow in your afterglow
Heal me from all this sorrow
As I let you go I will find my way when I see your eyes
Now I'm living in your afterglow

Here I am, lost in the ashes of time, but who wants tomorrow?
In between the longing to hold you again
I'm caught in your shadow, I'm losing control
My mind drifts away, we only have today

Touch me and I will follow in your afterglow
Heal me from all this sorrow
As I let you go I will find my way
I will sacrifice 'til the blinding day when I see your eyes
Now I'm living in your afterglow

When the veils are gone as I let you go, as I let you go

Touch me and I will follow in your afterglow
Heal me from all this sorrow
As I let you go I will find my way, I will sacrifice
Now I'm living in your afterglow

Bathed in blue, the walls of my memory divide the thorns from the roses
It's you who is closest

"My Brother"

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was idealistic and believed he could make a difference.
He was immensely proud of the uniform and the badge and what they represent.
He felt privileged to be of service to his department, his community and to his country.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was friendly, courteous, and polite, yet firm.
He laughed and joked, but was serious when necessary.
He was competent, trained, and professional.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He had a strong sense of right and wrong and became
frustrated when true justice became sidetracked.
He felt the sharp criticism that goes with the job, but he
never wavered.
He stood by and for his fellow officers.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He longed for his family during the long hours.
He worried about them during his shifts and the lonely
weekends, holidays and midnights when they were apart.
He felt guilty about the lost time, but knew his calling
and prayed they would understand.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was a good son, a loving husband, and a devoted father.
He was dedicated to the profession and cared about the
people he served.
He wanted to do the best job that he could and strived to
be the best he could be.
He was a good citizen and a good neighbor.

He was a cop.

Yes, I did know him.
He was a cop, he was my Brother.

Rest easy Brother Ghussin, we have the watch...

”I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.”
---Isaiah 6:8

You answered the call and made the ultimate sacrifice. Rest easy in God's kingdom and watch over us as we continue the battle here on earth!!!
