The Motor Officers Poem

It sounds like thunder far away, but skies are blue and bright
and soon they crest the hill nearby, and ride into our sight.
They shake the ground with powerful sound, and they make some hearts beat fast
they look so proud and noble, like Knights come from the past.
Side by side, they always ride, and seem to move as one
from early in the morning light, to the setting sun.
And children point and wave to them, from cars that pass them by
the young ones ask their parents, why the men have mirrors for eyes.

They ride the roads, and fight for good, and defend small ones like you
they ask to ride and do with pride, and sometimes they are few.
Like men of steel, on Silver Wings, they sparkle in the light
then with a roar and rumble they ride out of our sight.

Sometimes when one has fallen, never to ride again
you hear the others calling, like thunder in the wind.
Side by side, they slowly ride, and their thunder is a mournful sound
and the mirrors hide their eyes from us, when tear drops hit the ground.

So if you see one riding, and you look into his face,
you see your reflection in his eyes and know that you are safe.
For motormen are a special breed, they love to ride the wind
and when you hear the thunder boom, the fallen ones ride again.

Such a terrible twist of irony. We are so proud of and thankful for LCpl Nash and all our courageous protectors - doing the tough job of keeping the citizens safe. How could someone be so careless to not see what THEY should have been pulled over honoring. Heroes live forever. God give the family strength and comfort.

My prayers are with the family of Corporal Nash at this hard time....There are not many words that can be expressed at a time like this...However, as a Survivor of the Shield and the most wonderful shield in the world, you and your family will be protected each and every day by your son and all of his comrades that have made the ultimate sacrifice....It has been twelve long years and my son would have been the same age now....Time will heal and you will always have the beautiful memories that your son has given to you....God Bless and RIP Corporal Nash

What a tragic accident. My prayers will be with the family and friends of LC Nash. It breaks my heart to see such love poured out for a family that lost someone and in doing so, another must give his life. May God grant both families and all officers concerned, peace beyond measure, love everlasting and grace without boundaries. Let both men be recognized as heros of the community.
God Bless All of You.
