To Officer Keen and his family, our hearts bleed for all of you. Every time we loose another officer it rips through our souls as we know all too well what road all of you are now on, and must travel for the rest of your lives. No matter what please, please, please stay close to one another. Your Son, Brother is a HERO and will forever be a HERO!! We will NEVER FORGET the sacrifices each of you made by Officer Keen deciding to put on the uniform and badge EVERYDAY. May God give all of you peace knowing he saved the life of others and did so so proudly. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they are and will be called the Children of God. Officer Keen, May you Rest In Peace and continue to show the signs to your family that you are around them, FOREVER. As a mother of a fallen hero, my son does this daily and knowing he’s still here, brings great comfort. So I ask you Officer Keen, please be their guardian angel as they walk through the shadows of grief. All of the officer supporters and the officers you left behind, will take it from here, sir. RIP!!

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.

The entire Webber International University community mourns the loss of our former student and player Julian Keene, Jr. His time with us was short, but he was much loved and greatly respected. While we have unbounded respect and are forever grateful that he demonstrated his willingness to lay down his life to protect others, we are deeply saddened that it came to that. Being willing to make the sacrifice does not take away from the fact that it is the ultimate sacrifice. We pray for his family, his friends, and his colleagues in this time of great grief. May, for all of you, the self-evident fact that his was a life well lived bring comfort.
