Reflections for Detective Miosotis P. Familia

There are no words to reflect such grievance. To say good-bye to a faithful wearer of the Badge of Honor.
As we hang our heads low, whispering the Honorary Departure, we have in our hearts, the anger towards the cowardly act placed upon you.
We can only pray for the protection of your Family and your place to Heaven.
God Bless you.
We will now take responsibility of your Family on Earth as you watch from Heaven.
You have done your job and it is End of Watch...
Rest now Miosotis Familia...God Bless and say a Big "Howdy" to all of the rest of the Protectors that wore the Badge of Honor!

My heart is filled with great sadness at learning of the lost of your loved one and fellow Officer.
We in the law enforcement community are a family, although our uniforms may be a different style and vary in color, a badge, shield or star may be pinned upon our chest. Our areas of enforcement may vary but our goals are the same, to Serve and Protect our communities.
We consist of many different agencies from across the nation, for we are: Municipal Police Officers, Sheriff's Deputies, State Police Investigators, State Highway Patrol Troopers, Conservation Police Officers, College Campus Police Officers, Correctional Officers and Federal Agents just to name a few.
We patrol small towns, large cities, college campuses, county roads, state highways, state prisons, county jails, state parks and the United States Borders.
Whether active duty or retired, we are one family, a Law Enforcement Family, the thin blue line of protectors, brothers and sisters bonded together by HONOR, SERVICE and PRIDE.
Daily we honor our fallen brothers and sisters never forgetting their sacrifice and the sacrifice of their families.
Daily our position is clear that we will Serve and Protect our communities without faltering and with no hesitation.
Daily we show pride in our chosen profession LAW ENFORCEMENT, for we willingly walk the line of good over evil facing the unknown with courage keeping our trust and our faith in GOD.
We know that evil roams these streets and at any moment in the course of performing our duties the ultimate sacrifice might be required of us in the service to our community, for Law Enforcement is not not a job but a calling and only a few will make the decision to commit to that calling to serve for some will give all that they have.
ALL LIVES MATTER - LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS SHOULD BE RESPECTED - If we don't respond to that call for help, or investigate that suspicious subject(s), or stop for that stranded motorist, or rush to that call of shots fired then who will?
You did not die in vain.
You sacrificed your life in the service to the citizens of New York City in the State of New York with HONOR, PRIDE and DISTINCTION.
I'm proud to have worn the uniform of a law enforcement officer like you did.
I'm proud to have pinned the badge upon my chest like you did.
I'm proud to have Served and Protected my community as you did.
I'm proud to call you my SISTER!
I commend you my fallen sister for making the ultimate sacrifice in the performance of your duty.
For you left doing what you chose to do.
Performing a job you were trained to do.
Upholding the oath you swore to do.
Most importantly doing what you loved to do..........Serving and Protecting your community with Honor and Pride making a better and safer place for us all.
Officer Familia status.....Officer Familia status.....Officer Familia status....... Attention All Units........New York City Police Department, Police Officer Miosotis Familia I.D.#7370 having served the citizens of New York City in the State of New York with HONOR, PRIDE and DISTINCTION is now
Rest In Peace my fallen Sister, YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!!!

Your children have lost a dear mother, the job, a dedicated individual, and the world has lost a good person. We mourn your loss and honor you here.

So long as your children are forever reminded of who you truly were, you will never be truly gone from them.

God Bless and may you forever Rest in Peace, Sister.

Every morning I go to my knees. During that time I pray Psalm 91 over all LEO’s and this prayer also:

“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 your family to God every morning for over six years. I pray that Miosotis' life and death will bring glory to His name.

Trust those prayers. God is with you; He knows and will ease your pain.
