It's happened again. Once more a promising young life has been extinguished for no discernible reason. Once again I will spit shine boots, affix ribbons, dust off my service cap and press out my class A uniform so that I can, once again, stand in ranks of other law enforcement officers at a memorial service. Yet again I will struggle to hold back tears as I hear the final call broadcast for a brother in arms, and try to suppress the lump in my throat as his wife, or perhaps his parents, cry out in anguish. I might even succeed at maintaining my bearing.

I hear the pitter patter of his purposeful little steps running down the hallway.  I know the swan dive into our bed is imminent.  “Take me to see a police car!”  He’s 4 years old, he has bright blue eyes, and resembles his father.   Just in the past few months, he has finally understood that his daddy wears the same uniform as the guys who drive his favorite toy cars and play his favorite characters on TV.   He doesn’t understand the weight that comes along with his father’s occupation.  In his world, there is only good.  Bad doesn’t exist.  He
