"Somebody killed a policeman today,
And a part of America died.
A piece of our country he swore to protect
Will be buried with him at his side.
The suspect who shot him will stand up in court,
With counsel demanding his rights,
While a young widowed mother must work for her kids
And spend alone many long nights.
The beat that he walked was a battlefield, too,
Just as if he'd gone off to war.
Though the flag of our nation won't fly at half mast,
To his name they will add a gold star.
Yes, somebody killed a policeman today,
It happened in your town or mine.
While we slept in comfort behind our locked doors,
A cop put his life on the line.
Now, his ghost walks a beat on a dark city street,
And he stands at each new rookie's side.
He answered the call and gave us his all,
And a part of America died."

It takes courage to serve, to protect and to keep our communities strong. Your service in protecting others made you a very remarkable person and someone truly worthy of our deepest gratitude. My dad was only six months away from retirement when he was killed in Baltimore Maryland. On the road of life, wherever you are may God guide your way as you reach for a star and may you find always while he is close by, no dream is too lofty and no goal is too high. You walk with the true hero's who walked before you
