Reflections for Officer Breann Rochelle Leath

You were 24 years old, just like me. Answering a call I answer daily. It wasn’t late at night. 3 p.m. Women constitute less than 13% of all law enforcement. I say that often. On April 9th that percentage got a little smaller. Officer Leath, I promise every women that comes to me interest in being a police officer I will tell your story. I will share your life in hopes that your sacrifice to willing protect the innocent will encourage them to stand in line. To grow our percentage. I may have never met you, but it is in honor to be less than 13% with you. Rest easy, Officer Leath. We will hold the line.

I retired in January 2017 from the Tampa Police Department.. What a beautiful spirit, it hurts me so bad to hear this, I know the commitments, I know the sacrifice and I remember when I first came on the excitement of making a difference in the lives of people with danger always in the midst. I will pray for her family and son. Rest in peace my beautiful sister in Christ. You will never Be Forgotten. Matthew 5:9-10-11-12.

Rest in Peace sister 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.

RIP sweet soul and hero! I will pray for your baby boy each and every day. May he find peace in the fact that his mommy is forever a hero. To lay down your life for another is the greatest sacrifice. May the dear Lord bless your baby boy and may your sacrifice compel the young lady that you saved to honor you by attempting to live a life as miraculous as yours. I pray that she never take her life for granted as you gave yours for her.
