I'm so disheartened to hear of another officer lost while protecting his community
God bless him and may God be with his family, wife and kids, and may God be with those that worked beside him every day,his brothers and sisters in arms. God bless the thin Blue Line. Stay safe my brothers and sisters and know God is watching over you and your sacrifice of putting on the badge everyday, leaving your family and your homes to go we're Angels dare to tread, is greatly appreciated. God bless you Deputy your brothers and sisters will take your watch from here.

In Honor of your Sacrifice and for your family and friends, I salute you as a HERO!

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

Once again in Colorado the law enforcement community has had another deputy killed in the line of duty. It is hard to believe that in 37 days, (3) deputies have paid the ultimate price. Deputy Flick you served your God and agency proudly. May He welcome you home and give strength to your wife, children, family and fellow law enforcement officers. The other deputies, CSPD Officer and civilian wounded during this tragic event are also in my thoughts and prayers.

"There is only one strong, safe, and secure place for me; it’s in God alone and I love him!
He’s the one who gives me strength and skill for the battle. He’s my shelter of love and my fortress of faith, who wraps himself around me as a secure shield.
I hide myself in this one who subdues enemies before me."
Psalm 144: 1,2
