Officer Sheldon, only our good Lord would know why you were taken back to Him while you were just beginning your life on earth. He must have seen something good in you and He wanted you to be on His team. May He immerse you and those you've left behind in His Divine Mercy. Rest in peace, good and faithful servant.

Today, I will not answer the radio call that your boyfriend has come home drunk and is beating you again. Today I will not answer the radio call that your 16 year old daughter, who is very responsible, is four hours late coming home from school. Today I will not answer the radio call that your store has been robbed or your house has been burglarized. Today I will not stop a drunk driver from killing someone. I will not catch a murderer or a car thief. Today I will not answer the radio call that a man has a gun or tried to abduct a child or that someone has been stabbed or has been in a terrible accident. Today I will not save your child that you locked in a car or the child you were to busy to watch who went outside and fell into the swimming pool, but that I revived. No, today I will not do that.

Why? Because Today I was killed by a drunk driver while I was helping push a disabled car off the highway. Today I was shot and killed during a routine traffic stop to simply tell someone that they had a taillight out. Today I was killed in a traffic accident rushing to help a citizen. Today I was shot and killed serving a warrant on a known drug dealer. Today I was killed by a man when I came by to do a welfare check because his family was to busy. Today I was killed trying to stop a bank robbery or a grocery store robbery. Today I was killed doing my job.

So to be Connecticut State Police

The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
ones character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.

Thank-you, Officer Sheldon. You are a hero. Your courage kept you going to work every day knowing that even though 90% of the people you stop are unlikely to assault you, there is evil in the world, and one day that person you stop will be a violent criminal. And still, you did your job every day, keeping us safe and keeping our communities as peace. “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” Thank-you.
