    On this Christmas day . . .

    It is quiet and I find myself remembering.

    I remember those fellow officers we lost this year and in years past. I remember those officers lost on a sunny day in September of 2001. I remember the loss of a fellow officer on a summer day this year, killed for caring about an insane man.

    I remember family members who left me, passing on to a better place. I remember standing in the snow a few years ago, weeping about a young man who felt hopelessness and hung himself in his family's garage. A kid I knew and tried to help.

    For me, Christmas is a time of rememberances, candles lit for those lost. Christmas is a time of hope and wishes for a better year.

    And on this Christmas day, I remember.

    You walk a thin line between calm and chaos. Your devotion and caring will not be forgotten and will forever be a part of your legacy.

    You're not alone. The circumstances may be different for me but remembrances are the same.

    Yep.
    Amen.

    Old People, like me, may not be around to witness the destruction of our Nation. The rest of you may not survive the collapse. We all have the sworn duty to prevent it.

    The light of hope burns brighter than the fires of doom.
