Reflections for Agent Rosario Hernández de Hoyos

I will always cherish the moments we shared together. I miss you so much and think of you often. Today, I serve as a Master at Arms in the US Navy. I now wear a badge above of our family name with pride. It is an honor to wear this uniform, just as it was for you throughout your career. I grew up inspired by your dedicated service and commitment. Wearing this uniform connects me to you. Though we are apart, the values you instilled in me guide me each day. I strive to make you proud. Como me gustaria que me puedas ver en el hombre que me has echo. Te quiero mucho y que descanse.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Rosario
was killed.

To the Hernandez de Hoyos family, fellow deputies, and all who call Rosario beloved, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Agent Hernandez de Hoyos gave to her community and the citizens of Puerto Rico, and for the supreme sacrifice she and her family made on December 28, 2015.

"The Final Inspection"
The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"
The policeman squared his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.
But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."
