Reflections for Officer Kaulike Saylor Gerard Kalama

62nd chapter of Isaiah verse 6
Is a promise from God to his chosen people that he will always provide watchmen for our walls sentinels and soldiers who see evil coming from along way off, and lead the charge to look for good. To all of you who remain on the wall we say thank you.  There are an infinite number of ways one can pass from this world. And I can think of no better way to go then to offer up your life for the shake of freedom. The honor of standing against the agents of chaos who prowl in the shadows and to say to them you may take my life but you will go no further. I give my life so that others may live free. Officer Kaulike Kalama the community prays for you and your family. Please pray for us.

My thoughts & prayers are with Officer Kalama, his family and friends. I also extend my condolences to his HPD family.

I've been traveling to Honolulu since 1981, mainly to visit family. I have observed the change in population and crime. I returned from Honolulu on January 16 and over breakfast with friends on the following Sunday I discussed the rise in violent crime. In the eight days I was in Honolulu there was four homicides, three by gunfire and one stabbing, unreal. I then see the news later Sunday that two HPD officers were killed in the line of duty. I was heartbroken to see the faces of these two young officers. A "local girl and boy," that chose a career to serve and protect the community they were raised in. Hawaii has always been a place where the Aloha Spirit is alive and well to me. Hawaii was a place I felt comfortable and safe not carrying a concealed weapon, unlike Los Angeles County/Mainland. I unfortunately feel differently now.

I commend ODMP that has allowed this forum to express condolences for those killed in the line of duty. ODMP is a stark reminder to the realities of the job. Every police academy should make recruits aware of this site. ODMP's synopsis of how an officer died can send a profound message to circumstances, tactics and training. Thank you to the chiefs and sheriffs that posted comments of sympathy for officers Enriquez and Kalama, they really get it, as well as "all" the other posts, LE and civilian.

The people of Hawaii should never forget the sacrifices of Officers Enriquez and Kalama, as well as the loved ones they leave behind. I'm sure their "Ohana" will be taken care of by their HPD family and community they served. God bless them both.

Avenue of the Fallen

Standing at attention in their class “A“uniforms, badges gleaming and shoes like glass, are your brothers and sisters of Law Enforcement. All of whom have previously paid the ultimate price.
Today, like many others, they welcome you to this wonderful place.
As you march down the Avenue of the Fallen, all eyes focus on you as if to say “it’s OK, you’re with your eternal partners.”
A salute is followed and a tear can be seen on so many faces.
Welcome, you served well.
Now come join us in the ranks, another is coming home.

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

I have had the honor and privilege of volunteering to serve both police officers and firefighters in the town in which I live. There is one promise that runs deep within these departments and departments across our great nation, “Not on my watch”. These brave men and women selflessly serve the citizens of their communities day in and day out, weekends, deep nights and holidays away from their loved ones because of a higher calling, to protect and serve. Thank you for your service and the ultimate sacrifice you have made Officer Kaulike Kalama. May GOD wrap his loving arms around your family, both blood and blue, during this most sorrowful time. May heaven give you the heroes welcome you so richly deserve, and may you now patrol streets of gold. Please continue to watch over us. GOD speed.

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.

I'm late with this reflection I'm am sick to my soul at the loss of my Brothers and Sisters that are being murdered by these thugs prayer is powerful and gives us comfort knowing that God will take care and walk with us but yet on this earth there has to be punishment for those who continue to commit these crimes against good people and us this cowardly thug took the easy way out it is said they are mental or he was on drugs or he was abused as a child ect ect what ever! I pray that one day that if these thugs do this no mercy is shown but bleeding heart attorneys and a judicial system that continues to allow this to happen wonder what they would say if it was there family I'm sorry for being long winded I'm just tired of my Brothers and Sisters not being heard God bless you and walk with you and your family and Department brother and sister Thank you for your sacrifice we will not forget not ever you are heroes Roman's 13 4
