Reflections for Patrolman Hosea Ocala Martin

You sacrificed your life almost 100 years ago, and now we are connected. Your name is engraved next to my son Diego who died in the line of duty 10 months ago. And that's when one realizes that time and space mean nothing. You were pretty much the age of my son. Times have changed, but the law and order should prevail. I hope I can meet any of your descendants at some point in life. Thanks for your service.
