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
one’s character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.

I am so sorry to learn of the grievous loss of Deputy Anderson when he died in the line of duty. To the Anderson family, fellow deputies, and all who call Mark beloved, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support. I hope that you continue to receive that same kind of support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Deputy Anderson gave to his community and the residents of Minnesota and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on April 15, 2021

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

Most merciful God, when a law enforcement officer does not make it home, it seems as though a curse has fallen upon us. It seems like the world has been turned upside down. It seems as though the plans of the wicked have prevailed. Yet, You work all things for the benefit of Your people. What wicked men mean for evil, You mean for good. Turn the curse of law enforcement officers into blessings. Let their blood cry out to You for vengeance, and allow their sacrifice to work good things through their communities. In Christ Jesus, I pray for all those law enforcement officers who have fallen in the Line-of-Duty. Amen.

The Apostle Paul taught, “Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” [Romans 12:19 ESV]
