Reflections for Police Officer Christopher Eric Ewing

Officer Ewing,

I met your mother today! What a wonderful woman she is.

I think all police mothers are, just to be able to send their sons and daughters off to such a thankless job as this everyday. The conversation brought back some memories of my career years ago. I made a promise to my mother if a police shooting occurred while I was on duty I would call her as soon as I could so she would know I was ok. Before cellphones, I had to find a pay phone or an open business to call. Sometimes that could take awhile. Talking to your mother, I could just imagine my mothers anxiety waiting for that phone call.

Although I never met or worked with you, I appreciated your mothers description of you. Certainly brought another perspective to a line of duty death. By the way, all 3 of us served in the USAF.

Man it's hard to believe that you are gone. Who would have ever thought as we goofed around in Basic Mandate that one of us would be gone so soon. Man you were a warrior and are truly missed by class 315

Praying for your family, friends, colleagues, agencies during this very difficult time for them and all of us. Thank you for your service! We shall remember you with pride and admiration always! May God Bless the Blue!

“The peacemakers are blessed, for they will be called sons [children] of God.” [Matthew 5:9 HCSB];

“Those who mourn are blessed, for they will be comforted.” [Matthew 5:4 HCSB], and;

“No one has greater love than this, that someone would lay down his life for his friends.” [John 15:13 HCSB]

Depart in peace, Brother-in-Blue; in the name of God the Father who created you; in the name of Christ Jesus who redeemed you; in the name of the Holy Spirit who sanctifies you. May you rest in peace and dwell forever with the Lord. Amen.

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.

Even though the time has come to end the watch, they are still watching. Even though they are no longer with us, they are still teaching. The loss is new and the pain is great but we carry on for our family’s sake. Give us the keys, we’ll take over from here. Now is the time to release your fears. We got your watch, we’ll carry on, rest with peace my brother for your never really gone.

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.
