Thank you for your sacrifice

Right now Ethan is excitedly looking out the window and pointing at all the helicopters hovering in the sky above local roads.

I'm choking back tears as I watch the same, and as I see police officers in dress uniforms walking by on their way to the memorial service being held nearby for one of their own.

Police officer Timothy Brenton, age 39 was killed in a horrible drive-by shooting on Saturday night. The person or persons who shot him have not been found yet.  He's a local man who served our city faithfully and left behind a wife and two children.

Our prayers are with the family of Officer Brenton and with all those who serve our country in law enforcement, public safety and the military. Thank you for all you do to keep us safe.

I am watching the news coverage as well and it is heart breaking. Such a horrible unnecessary loss.

I'm always in awe of people who risk their lives for total strangers. My prayers go out to his family.
