From September 9 – September 12, 2017 I participated in the 16th annual Tour de Force NY charity ride from Boston MA to New York City. This charity ride is in honor of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. It honors and remembers those lost in the 9/11 attacks as well as those lost annually since then serving their communities.
This year’s ride had ~250 riders and another 50 support staff volunteers to ensure the ride from Boston to NYC was organized and safe for all participating. Many portions of the ride in MA, RI, CT and NY were escorted by local law enforcement. As is the custom, each of the riders represents an officer lost in the line of duty since the previous ride, or one of their fallen brothers from their local force. There were over 130+ officers killed in the line of duty since last September.
I had the honor of carrying the pin for Major JSanchez, and representing the memory of Major Sanchez during the ride. I was humbled and overwhelmed with this privilege. This was the second year I have ridden.
Please know, that in these times when your service and sacrifice are often slandered in the media, there are many of us, maybe not as vocal, who respect and admire your work and sacrifice. Please also know that there are great organizations out there like the Tour de Force, that work behind the scenes to raise money to support those families that have sacrificed so much. T

He was my Daddy, my everything. He was the best father any child could ask for. He was someone that all of my siblings were always proud of. He is the one who will never break my heart and the man who loved me first. I could always count on him. He was intelligent, courageous, giving, generous and one hell of a domino player. He will always be my hero. I love you and miss you more and more daddy. The family and I miss you and love you.

Every morning I go to my knees. During that time I pray:

“Lord, Be with all law enforcement officers. Keep them safe and free from harm. They are Your soldiers on the front line of the battle against evil. If one should fall this day - wrap their family in your loving arms. Surround them with Your angels, loving family, friends, neighbors and caring people to comfort them. Ease their pain. Help them to mourn well. In Jesus' name and for Your Glory, Amen.”

Feel His presence as God answers the prayers of many who have fallen to their knees on your behalf. Since the day of my son's death, I have carried every law enforcement officer and their family in my heart.

I have lifted you and your family to God every morning for over five years. Feel those prayers. God is with you; He knows and will ease your pain.

Our faith helps us to see beyond the grave.
