    Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (LAPD)

    Link


    Did anyone else catch this week's episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition?

    I like that show, and I have to admit that this week's episode really hit home for me. They featured a brave female officer and her husband, both LAPD officers, who needed some assistance after she was shot in the line of duty, leaving her paralyzed.

    It was a very touching episode for me, and my wife as well. I often tease my wife for turning on the water works when we watch the show, but this week was different. We both teared up a bit.

    For those who haven't seen it, check out the website. ABC did a lot for these two officers and the show was very tastefully done.

    I was impressed by the positive light that the show shined on the brave men and women of the LAPD, and other LEOs across America. It was also nice to see the support of their department and their community.

    If anyone knows these two officers, please pass along my best wishes for them and let them know that I have said a prayer for them.

    Then invite them to join the site.

    I had to work, and my request to have it on our tv's was denied. Not "special" enough.

    That was very touching. I too like the show, but last night was very well done. I teared up several times, and the out ouring and support from the community and the Dept was so very impressive. Made me almost want to run out and join the LAPD.

    Loved it when LAPD SWAT did the demolish.
    "Somewhere a True Believer is training to kill you.
    He is training with minimum food or water, in austere conditions, day and night.
    The only thing clean on him is his weapon.
    He doesn't worry about what workout to do---his rucksack weighs what it weighs, and he runs until the enemy stops chasing him.
    The True Believer doesn't care "how hard it is"; he knows he either wins or he dies.
    He doesn't go home at 1700; he is home.
    He knows only the Cause.
    Now, who wants to quit?"

    "I am only one, but I am one. I can not do everything, but I can do something. And because I can not do everything I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. What I can do I should do. And what I should do, by the Grace of God, I will do."

    I caught the last hour or so of it. Very well done episode, yep and almost had to go for the kleenex a few times.
    There’s a promise I need you to make
    While I’m gone you take care of the love
    And I’ll deal with the hate.

    Don’t worry about me; I’ll be all right
    Just care for your children and sleep tight
    I’ll keep you safe on my watch tonight

    That is really awsome.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    They need to do a damn replay of the episode.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    If this was very recent, I missed it because I never fail to watch it!
    I know that it was supposed to be shown in Dec '06 but cut at the last moment. I have been waiting till they replay it and the show is here in the Midwest on sundays at 6 or 7 PM depending on how many hours shown. I believe this was supposed to be a two hour show. I hope they put it on tomorrow night as I would really love to see it, it DOES more than tear me up ! You guys are not old enough and retired long enough to understand YET !!
    Take care and be safe out there ALL !! Cover over each others calls and car stops !!
