Reflections for Police Officer Kevin Paul Marceau

Kevin was my cousin. I lived up in Massachusetts, he grew up in Texas. I was much younger than Kevin, but I grew up hearing stories of Kevin from my proud Grandparents and my Aunt and Uncle. I would occasionally get to see him and the rest of the family on holidays when they would make the trek north, which was always great. He was always a hero to me. Hearing about him joining the service in the first Iraq war and of course becoming a Dallas Police Officer. I had a great opportunity to spend time with my Aunt and Uncle while looking at colleges, and spent time with Kevin riding as an observer in his Dallas Patrol. He loved the job and he encouraged me to continue pursuing life in Public Safety. He loved helping people and protecting those around him. He said I would get a lot out of helping others...and he was right. At a time in my life when I had no idea as to what direction to go, because of Kevin, I got myself together and it changed my life.

In Honor of your Sacrifice and for your family and friends, I salute you as a HERO!

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whose blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.
