"The Final Inspection"
The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"
The policeman squared his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.
But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."

Trooper Sanchez, your murderer took you from those nearest and dearest to you and he took you from your huge extended family as well. I pray justice will find him. It will not bring you back, but it could save countless other lives if he never feels freedom again.

God Bless you, Brother and may your eternal rest be ever peaceful.

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.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Moises was killed in the line of duty.

To the Sanchez family, fellow troopers, and all who call Moises 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 that you receive that same kind of support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Trooper Sanchez gave to his community and the citizens of Texas and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on August 24, 2019.

Trooper Sanchez, for four months, you suffered in silence, with your loved ones surely hoping you would recover. But it was not meant to be. Our Lord must have wanted to spend that time with you, having conversations with you and loving you. Now it's over. No more pain, no more tears, only peace and joy in the loving arms of our Lord. May He immerse you and your loved ones in His Divine Mercy. Rest in peace, good and faithful servant.
