Reflections for Sergeant Edmund P. Murray

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]

Ed, it is the 6 year anniversary of your LOD death that was the direct result of the poison we had to breath at the 9/11 hell, both that day & the year after. Whitman said the air was fine but we knew it wasn't. Still we went, day after day to that toxic burning chemical grave, We had no protection. Your supreme sacrifice will never be forgotten. I will always remember our days working in the 43rd Precinct in the Bronx. You were always a fine Officer of the NYPD as well as a gentleman. RIP Ed

Everyone remembers where they were on this day, and Officer Sergeant Murry is the face of Heroism for me. I didn't met him personally. I rode in the LEU Road To Hope this year to honor his sacrifice. My older brother, K9 Officer Tim Brackeen also gave his life in the line of duty. So the price these men, and women pay to faithfully fulfill their duties. Is ever real to my family and I. Sergeant Murry, we honor your sacrifice, we determine to remember your bravery, and your life and commitment will be held in our hearts with highest esteem. Prayers for your family, and all those you loved.

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.

I am honored to leave the first reflection on your page. Your heroism and service is honored today, the third 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 who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. We shall never forget our 9/11 heroes.

Rest In Peace
