Reflections for Special Officer John J. Ellis

100 years ago when you died, The Pennsy was the greatest railroad in the world. Much has changed in the past century, and today there is no Pennsylvania Railroad. But your memory and honor lives on.

Officer Ellis,
On today, the 100th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but for our Country as well when you served with the USN.

Officer Ellis, thank you for your service to our nation as a member of the United States Navy, and thank you also for helping to protect one of the reasons our nation is as great as it is, our railroads. You are truly a hero.

How tragic that a piece of dirt who only had to leave turned a minor event into a murder charge. Though the final fate of the beast who killed you, I am confident that he faced true justice, if not in this world, then in the next.

God Bless, Brother and may your rest forever be peaceful.
