Reflections for Patrol Officer Sean Allen Collier

He looks so young. I bet he loved the idea of being a police officer, and his dream came true. So sad someone so evil had to take that dream away from him, his gift away from so many. Prayers for his family and loved ones he leaves behind on the force and at home.

When one goes down, a piece of all of us go down. And in the same breath we still are on duty. The thin blue line is really a thick blue line because we will always step up to protect and serve. God bless to everyone touched by this. May you know His peace, comfort, and the strength of your own solidarity. Take care.

Law Enforcement is not a job but a calling and only a few will make the decision to commit to that calling to serve for some will give all that they have. I commend you for making the ultimate sacrifice in the performance of your duty. Upholding the oath you swore to do. Serving your community making a better and safer place for us all. Thank you, May you Rest in Peace Sir.
