    I just would like to tell you all about a special site. www.officerpratt.com. I have had the privilege of talking to the founder of this site several times. This site was founded by the parents of Officer Tye Pratt. Officer Pratt was killed in the line of duty.


    Please take the time to visit this unique site. And if you ever need anything let them know that I sent you from LEF. They are big supporters of this site as well!

    After Tye's Death Tye's parents, Mike Pratt Sr. and Rita Pratt, wanted to do somthing in his honor, to keep Tye's quest alive... "to make a difference in the lives of others".
    "I always have believed if you can change the hearts and minds of children you can change the way they feel about themselves, how they feel about themselves determines their actions and that determines what they become"... "As the twig grows, so grows the tree" Mr. Pratt said. We want to do something to help guide the youth of our community.

    After trying to work with Omaha Police Foundation and meeting with Barbra Wilson of The Jimmy Wilson Foundation and TheBoys and Girls Club of Omahathey came to the conclusion, "there's no need to start a new fund or orgainztion", we'll just help raise money with the TyeBandsTM".

    The TyeBandTM was created after the father of Officer Jason "Tye" Pratt received a narrow wrist band which simply bore Tye's badge number... 1463. Although his father was humbled by this thoughtful gesture, in memory of his son, his emotions were mixed. As Tye's father looked at it he thought ... "that was nice, but Tye is so much more than a number". He needs to be remembered for who he was and what he lived for... someone who was
    "Making a Difference in The Lives of Others".

    I just looked over the page, to include the funeral pictures...very moving. I'm glad his parents are doing so much good in his memory.
