The Law Enforcement Officers of Today are at greater risk than ever before. I pray for the family and friends of this officer. AS America's Most Wanted always says, "It's not how they died, but how they lived." I thank the Lord for the officers of our federal, state, county, and local
agencies who serve and protect. Thank you to each one that risks their life everyday and for those families who have sacrificed so that the rest of us might have a safer place to live.

Another Trooper has fallen, Lord, You must have had a very special reason for needing him now, which is unknown to us. Trooper Burns is now standing his watch in Your Kingdom. He watches and now protects ALL of us. God bless you Trooper Burns, and thank you for all your time of service and God bless your family for allowing you to serve. Dear Lord take care of him, for he is special and you now have another fine Trooper.
