Reflections for Sergeant Meggan Lee Callahan

Rest in Peace Sgt. Callahan. Thank you for your service. My thoughts and prayers are with the Callahan Family and the North Carolina Department of Corrections.

Nobody deserves what happened to you that day. NC has effectively abolished capital punishment and hamstrung its own criminal justice system through the adoption of weak enforcement mechanisms which favor the appeasement of the politically correct. This comes at the grave cost of our defenders' lives. Despite this atrocity and the unwillingness of the powers that be to take action, he will receive justice in this life or the next. We pray for you and the other peacemakers taken from their families with such despicable violence here on Earth until the day, God willing, you meet again.

I pray that everyone will find comfort in Revelation 21:4, where it says "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." Until we can see all of our loved ones again in Paradise, please accept my condolences.

You knew the face of evil,
You saw it every day.
And when it reared its ugly head you didn't run away.
You fulfilled the oath you pledged the day the Badge
was pinned on your chest.
You did your job with courage and now it's time to rest.

Lord, when it’s time to go inside,
That Place of steel and stone.
I pray that you will keep me safe,
So I won’t walk alone.

Help me to do my duty,
Please watch me on my rounds.
Amongst those perilous places,
And slamming steel door sounds.

God, keep my fellow Officers
Well and free from harm.
Let them know I’ll be there too,
Whenever there’s alarm.

Above all when I walk my beat,
No matter where I roam.
Let me go back whence I came,
To family and home.
