Jennifer it’s Police Week 2024. Two years later and we are here in Washington DC still honoring you and your dedicated services to others. Our second year honoring you. We love you still and miss you. Your law enforcement family is here honoring you and others in full force. Our hearts still broken. Miss your calls at night letting me know you made it safely home. Still wait up at night waiting on your call sometimes I’m your mother and still think of you often. Miss you so.

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.

Drunk driving in some states is treated as a joke. Here a beautiful young woman lost her life to somebody who will be out of jail in a few days and drinking and driving. The new law - 1st DUI, you win a bicycle, second offense, no driving for life in all 50 states or Canada. You can drive in northern Mexico, Ukraine, or Somalia.

In Honor of your Sacrifice and for your family and friends, I salute you as a HERO!

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whose blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

To the family of Deputy Constable Chavis and all the men and women of Harris County Precinct 7, my heart is broken for your loss and I have been unable to find the words to express my profound sorrow for the death of this young vibrant police officer, wife, and mother.

My prayers will be with all of you each day as each of you individually navigate the difficulties and pain associated with learning to live each day without her present in your life.

For her husband, the loss of his best friend and companion, the precious mother to his little boy. Only his faith in God and the support of extended family and her brothers and sisters in blue and time only it's self will close the hole in his heart.

For her little boy who hasn't had enough years with his mother to know or understand how special she was and why she is no longer coming home is especially tragic. As he gets older, he will learn from his dad and other extended family who his mommy was how much she loved him.

And from her brothers and sisters in blue, he will learn about the Character, Integrity, Bravery, and Commitment to Public Service that placed her in the seat of that patrol car on the evening of her last shift.

At this time her loss is so painful that I'm sure it's almost impossible to find something positive in such a tragic event. As I praying for the right words to say here the" Lord said tell them this was my plan. I loaned her to all of you so she could bring friendship and joy to each of you in a special way. She is sitting at the right hand of the father now . Celebrate her life and the time you had with her because it was a life Well Lived and Time Well Spent".
