Vote for this Officer...
The vote link is at the bottom of the page... its quick and easy...
There is a contest being held by good morning america for a dream family vacation to disney world. There is a police officer in california that entered and they are down to the final 3. Click on the link below and you can see video of his story, and cast your vote! After everything an officer does and see's every day. I can think of no one more deserving of a vaction. Since there is one in the running for this contest please help him win it. His name is Ed Olsen
Ed Olsen and Family from Buelton, Calif.
Let me first start off by saying that my kids are healthy, I am happily married to a wonderful woman, and we both enjoy our careers. We have a very comfortable life and we are very thankful for that.
I am a police officer, a police sergeant to be exact, and I have worked at my agency for 17 years. I work in a relatively small city that is active enough to give me a very exciting career. I have been a patrol officer, a crime scene investigator, a major crimes detective, a SWAT team member, and now I supervise the Major Crimes Unit. We investigate the worst crimes imaginable.
For the better part of my career, I have seen the horrible things people do to one another. Now it is my responsibility to make sure these crimes are investigated appropriately and professionally. This is a huge burden to bear. I don't have it any worse than any other law enforcement officer does any where in the country. That is to say, I don't deserve any more or less than any of my brothers and sisters who took the oath to protect and serve.
I do, however, owe a great deal to my two daughters. Eight almost nine years ago when my oldest girl was born, I was a hard and bitter man. A robot if you will, as I had lost all emotion. Life as I saw it was an ugly place. The second, and I mean the very second, my daughter entered this world I too was reborn. Since that day I am reminded how innocent and fun life is each and every day I come home from work and I am greeted with smiles and hugs.
I have always placed myself in positions of great authority and immense responsibility. This prevents me from really taking time away from the important work that I do. This GMA Family Paradise Contest is type of gift I have wanted to give my children for years. It's my way of saying "thank you for making me better than I am."

count me in500 fights, that's the number I figured when I was a kid. 500 street fights and you could consider yourself a legitimate tough guy. You need them for experience. To develop leather skin. So I got started. Of course along the way you stop thinking about being tough and all that. It stops being the point. You get past the silliness of it all. But then, after, you realize that's what you are.
