I have had the honor and privilege of volunteering to serve both police officers and firefighters in the town in which I live. There is one promise that runs deep within these departments and departments across our great nation, “Not on my watch”. These brave men and women selflessly serve the citizens of their communities day in and day out, weekends, deep nights and holidays away from their loved ones because of a higher calling, to protect and serve. Thank you for your service and the ultimate sacrifice you have made
Officer Richard Houston, II. May GOD wrap his loving arms around your family, both blood and blue, during this most sorrowful time. May heaven give you the heroes welcome you so richly deserve, and may you now patrol streets of gold. Please continue to watch over us. GOD speed.

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.
