Something I Made
Back in 2002, a native of my hometown here in Michigan was killed down on the Mexican border at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, he was a Park Ranger there and was gunned down trying to apphrehend two illegal aliens crossing the border. I never met Kris, but after his death, my explorer post was very active with his family, in regards to his funeral, and memoriums. Through these I gained a strong sense of the person that Kris was and it almost felt that I had met him once before. His family is very active now in Washington trying to lobby for stronger border legislation and also in our community to make sure that Kris is never forgotten as well as all the law enforcement officers who have been killed doing what they do best. Through this time I've gained a unique relationship with his parents and this year approaches the 4th anniversay of Kris' death.
I've taken on a photography hobby and especially enjoy putting pictures together in frames, collage type thing. Don't know the exact name.
So I've been working a bit on this project and finally got it done today, was able to visit Organ Pipe a few years ago and got the pictures so this project is for Kris's parents to let them know 4 years later some have not forgotten and thought I'd share with everyone.
Thereís a promise I need you to make
While Iím gone you take care of the love
And Iíll deal with the hate.
Donít worry about me; Iíll be all right
Just care for your children and sleep tight
Iíll keep you safe on my watch tonight
