We’d like to invite you to participate in the National Day of Prayer for Law Enforcement Officers on Friday, June 15.  As we write this letter, 42 law enforcement officers have been killed in the line of duty in this country.  That means there are 42 sets of families, friends, and coworkers who have been left in grief and sadness.  To honor these heroes, we are asking people of all faiths to come together and pray for the officers still working the streets.

National Day of Prayer for Law Enforcement

We’d like to invite you to participate in the National Day of Prayer for Law Enforcement Officers on Friday, June 15.  As we write this letter, 42 law enforcement officers have been killed in the line of duty in this country.  That means there are 42 sets of families, friends, and coworkers who have been left in grief and sadness.  To honor these heroes, we are asking people of all faiths to come together and pray for the officers still working the streets.

As law enforcement family members, we pray every day that our officers return home safely.   We cry at the news of another fallen officer.  And, we reach out to the law enforcement community around us for support and reassurance.  Now we are asking the community around us to do the same.  Please make a commitment to support your law enforcement officers and their families.  Please set aside some time on Friday, June 15 to stand united in prayer for our men and women in blue.  Please spread word of our campaign to your family, friends, coworkers, and places of worship.

If you can, schedule a time to come together at your city hall, a local park, or your place of worship and pray together.  Raise your voice to lift up our heroes in prayer.  Give your time to help strengthen the law enforcement community and ask to bring each officer home safely each day.  Show our officers that you appreciate the sacrifices they make to protect and serve you and your family.

Thank you for your support and your prayers!

LIFE BEHIND THE BADGE: THE TO-GO BOX

As the dispatcher's voice squawked out over the radio she knew dinner was over. She knew what came next. "Yes I will get you a to-go box." She said as she tried to conceal the disappointment on her face. They hadn't seen each other in weeks. This was a stolen dinner while on shift, but just once she would like to get through it with her husband, rather than ordering, receiving the meal and then being left to eat hers alone while his cooled in a Styrofoam box. "You really are the best, I love you." He said as he stood and hurried from the restaurant, muttering into the mic on his shoulder. "I love you too" she said to his retreating back, doubting that he even heard her. Read More
