Reflections for Police Officer Anthony Maggiore

Lord Jesus, as we watch our nation’s brave law enforcement officers succumb to the wicked and evil in this world, it becomes difficult for us to pick up and move forward. Our communities are on the brink of exploding with tension. In light of the law enforcement officers who are no longer with us, I pray for endurance for our communities and law enforcement agencies. Carry us through this time of strife, that through our struggles, our bonds may grow even more unbreakable. In Your mighty and holy name, I pray. Amen.

“And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” [Isaiah 6:8 ESV]

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” [Psalm 23:4 ESV]

One of the many amazing men and women who gave so selflessly and heroically that day and the many days that followed. Rest in peace always knowing that your service and sacrifice will never, ever be forgotten by your law enforcement brethren.

God rest your soul my brother. I was there and we may have crossed paths, but I didn't get a chance to thank you. Blessings to your family and department for your great loss. Until we meet to thank you.

Anthony. It a day goes by that I don’t remember you, working with you side by side, many times as my partner in a radio car or adjoining sector, backing me up always, having a blast at my wedding. Your jokes, your laughter, your temperament (never saw you mad) as you always smiled it off. The love for your family, your wife, your kids and your co-workers will forever remain with me. Rest In Peace.

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the fourth anniversary year of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

I pray for solace and strength for everyone who misses and loves Anthony . We will never forget the sacrifice made by each of the 9/11 heroes and their families.

Dear Anthony:

As a former resident of Yonkers, I want to say thank you for the sacrifice you made. I am appalled that there is so few reflections for you. You will NEVER be forgotten, never. Your sacrifice and now that of your family, has further enhanced our way of life and the freedoms we enjoy as Americans. Like you, I too went into law enforcement 37 years ago and only recently retired. But ours is a profession that only a few, a very select few, can do.

I know you are in a better place, looking down on the rest of us, and smiling. Smile Anthony, smile. Make our hearts warm knowing Almighty God has you with Him, and that that murdering son of a bitch Bin Laden has been sent to hell. (For the candle of the wicked shall be put out forever). Smile on us Anthony, knowing your sacrifice was not in vain, and that we remember always, what, “Protect and Serve” really means. Not a cliché; a code that we in law enforcement live by. Smile on us Anthony, knowing that America is stronger as a result of your actions and that of the all the others who gave all they had.

In closing, smile on us Anthony, knowing you are forever a member of the “Thin Blue Line”, a brotherhood unmatched anywhere in the world. You brought honor to us all, to your family, and to your name. May Almighty God bless you, your family, and God bless the United States of America.

Officer Maggiore, another life taken by the dirt who destroyed so many other lives before you and since. You are important, even in death whereas they are nothing, in life or death. Thank you for your service.

So long as those who know and love you keep you forever in their hearts and minds, you'll never truly be gone, Brother.

God Bless and may you eternally Rest in Peace.
