Reflections for Corporal Shawn Kevin Kelly

Cpl. Kelly,
On today, the 1st anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Denham Springs. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. I know it’s little consolation but at least your fellow Officers took care of business and put that POS where he belongs.

Lord God of unfailing love, to those families in our beloved nation, the United States of America, who are suffering in the wake of the loss of a law enforcement family member, help us to provide support. Allow us to be their rock and fortress in a time of immense pain and uncertainty. Help us to keep them safe and nourished in their time of grief, suffering beside them as we move toward healing and reconciliation. Lord God, in Your compassionate mercy, hear my prayer. In Christ Jesus, Your beloved Son, and by His authority, I pray. Amen.

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.
