Hello Everyone. It's been awhile. My life changed a bit in the last year. I will catch up in another post. Being in Texas, the events of last Thursday evening has us all stunned, confused, and horrified. So, I sat down and penned the following:
And even in face, this evil The Thin Blue Blue, a Police Officer will hold The American Police Officer will hold The American Police Officer, they who will run towards this evil, so bold. When those towers fell When those bullets hailed The American Police Officer, courage, bravery unveiled The American Police Officer, A man, A woman, could be me Hero not dreamed, but today, a hero surely be The American Police Officer White, Black, Brown,Yellow,Red, each one bleed one color, you see Blue, True Blue, Always Blue The American Police Officer Straight, Gay, Bi, Transgender, they too are a part Love obeys only the laws of the heart Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Muslim, not just a few Even Wiccan, Agnostic, and Atheist, are Blue too The American Police Officer Do not just look, See Humanity Do not just hear, Listen Real Voices Do not just touch, Feel True Commitment Do not just smell, Breathe Real Danger Do not just taste, Speak with Them My Lord, My God In Your Eyes The American Police Officer Is just as I

This Dallas incident had to shake your State especially hard, but it obviously has rippled throughout the country. Until the pendulum swings back towards the Public having respect for law enforcement again, I am afraid it will continue. The kinder, gentler sentences and handling of personal "rights" has emboldened criminals to push the envelope even further, since they have not really had to answer for so many of their previous crimes. Your ears must have been burning Mac...I was talking about you on Sunday to Tommy while I was visiting with him up in New York, the day you posted this. Glad to see you're still alive and kicking. I've sent several texts but never heard back so I didn't know if you changed your number.
