This reflection feels more like a love letter because although my interaction with you was probably in passing when you were an Explorer in Martinez, everything I have read about you and heard about you from your friends, your family, and your mentors made me aware that while your time on earth was so brief, the impact you had on so many lives is lasting and you are loved and admired by so many. You were a warrior for justice, you had a spunky and sassy attitude, you were relentless, and you were simply FIERCE. You are our hometown hero, and as far as I know you and my son are the only two graduates of CPHS to be murdered in the line of duty.

To all of your family, fellow Sac P.D. officers, and all who call Tara beloved, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support. I hope that same kind of support makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Officer Tara O'Sullivan gave to her community and the citizens of California, and for the supreme sacrifice she and her family made on June 19, 2019.

It saddens me to see such a young person killed by a murdering idiot. Domestic disturbances are so dangerous. And they can go sideways so quickly. My heart goes out to your family and all your Department.

I have a brother, well, considered brother, who is a police officer for Sacramento. I can't imagine the pain he, as well as your other brothers and sisters in blue must've felt upon losing you. To your family, I say these words: I am very sorry for your loss. To your fellow officers, this is my prayer: May you never die young. May you keep our streets, townships and neighborhoods safe, and may you always come home to your families and find a delicious home-cooked meal waiting for you on your table. RIP, Officer O'Sullivan, you will never be forgotten!

Your reward in heaven will be abundant as all good deeds do not go unnoticed by our all-loving, all-generous God. May He immerse you and your loved ones in His Divine Mercy. Rest in peace, good and faithful servant.

I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.

Yours, very sincerely and respectfully,

Abraham Lincoln
