The Thin Blue Line

"Cowards die many times before their deaths,
The valiant never taste of death but once."

"Destruction is not the law of humans. Man lives freely only by his readiness to die, if need be, at the hands of his brother, never by killing him. Every murder or other injury, no matter for what cause, committed or inflicted on another is a crime against humanity."
Mohandas Gandhi

I will still join the Police, guns or not.

Brian, it's a thoughtful blog entry today and our own words can't really sum up what we are feeling. God Bless Sharon and her family.

Condolences from a fellow officer. It is to the credit of her colleagues that they carried on professionally, even though emotionally they must be shot to bits. A colleague from my station was killed last year, I cried then as I am sure you cry now. I just hope the public fully appreciate the risks that she took to stop them being exposed to the same risks, and the price she paid. An echo from history -
"They shall not grow old as we that are left shall grow old, age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we shall remember them. Their names live for evermore."
