I rode the Heroes Bike Ride today in Montgomery, TX. They gave me a wrist-band with Corporal Cooper's name on it. It was an honor to ride today in his name. He will not be forgotten.

Dear Bill:

You are special. Why? It takes a special person to pin on a badge, strap on a gun, take an oath to protect and serve at all costs, in the face of mounting hatred for police officers. A special person who risks all, for less money than most people would ever consider working for, much less support a family. But special people don't do this job for the money, or else there would be no police officers.

A special person does all this because he gives a damn about stopping evil from hurting the decent people of this great nation. So my special brother, I offer a special prayer for you:

Father God, please never permit Bill's name and sacrifice be taken for granted or forgotten. Please hold him in Your hand and close to Your heart.

And look after his son and his wife, helping them to get through this and help heal their broken hearts. And exact Your justice on the animal that did this.

Bill, rest in peace my brother, we have the watch and the Thin Blue Line goes on.
