    Death notifications

    Once again, I just made it the worst day of someone's life. I had to call a young inmate up to my office and inform him of a family members death. Even after hearing it more times than I can remember, the sound of grief is something that brings out the humanity in everyone.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    Sorry you have to be the one to do that. It must be one of the tougher parts of your job.

    I'm sorry that you had to do that today Keith, but I'm sure that you did it with compassion. ((hug))

    Sucks to be the gaffer sometimes.
    Seriously.
    the sole advantage of power is that you can do more good.

    Nothing worse than waking parents up at 3:00am in the morning to tell them their kid who is suppose to out live them , didn't. One of mine was a Thanksgiving morning. I still hear the kid's mom's agonized screams to this day. Knowing you , I'm sure you handled this difficult task with great class and compassion. I hope you never have to do another notification again my friend.

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
