Reflections for Police Officer Nick O'Rear

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.

To the family of Police Officer Nick O'Rear, family, friends, Police Chief Ricky Pridmore and the Kimberly Police Department.
You are lifted up in heart, thought and prayers. May God comfort, hold you close and give you His peace that surpasses all understanding to keep your heart's and mind's through Christ Jesus now and always! Thank you for your service!
"The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." Paslm 34:18
" For God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten Son. That whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved." John 3:16 & 17

Rest in Peace brother and watch over us. We will protect and serve from here on in your honor.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

By Jon F. Hooper
