    Beautiful, and so moving… I pray daily for these brave men and women who have chosen to be in such a dangerous and most often thankless career. The news with the horrors against them lately have me in tears! Thanks to your brother, and all others, along with their families for all that they do!

    This brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for putting a name, a face, a story to a person who has given so much and received so little thanks, especially these days. Thank your brother for me.

    I really enjoyed reading this post. I myself have a husband who is a police officer, A chief in fact in our small town in the Hampshire and a father who is a retired detective for the Hampshire state police. With everything going on in our crazy world right now I truly appreciate even more what protect and serve stands for. I worry more now every day about what life can bring in the future. Raising kids today in this world scares me to death. I can only hope that it does get better for our children’s sake. Our son says all the time how proud he is of his daddy for being a policeman and that he wants to be one someday when he grows up. As much as I want that for him at the same time I don’t. Thank you for your post and God bless your brother may he be safe and protected out there.
    On a sidenote I recently purchased your book and look forward to reading it and passing it on to a friend of mine who has a son with autism. I have a son on the spectrum myself.
    thank you and God bless your family a Merry Christmas.

    Thank you for sharing that wonderful story. It sickens me to watch TV and see the protestors and rioters,etc that are blaming the police for their failures as parents /role models. I have always been thankful for law enforcement, even on the couple of occasions when I was speeding. I greeted them with a smile and respect, they are doing thier jobs to keep us safe. It is a sometimes dangerous and thankless job, I am so thankfulfor those that put it on the line to protect and serve our law abiding citizens.

    I have the fortunate pleasure of being able to put a face to the name of the officer in your story. Thank you for sharing not only the description of one of America’s finest but the strong bond between siblings. You both are truly beautiful people, and I am honored to have known you both.

    What a sweet, beautiful story.

    As much as you clearly cherish your brother I appreciate that such an obviously gifted writer puts so much of her personal world out there to help remind us that we’re all much more alike than we are different. It seems like we all need to take a few steps back from the edge and reassess things at times like these and your story of your brother helps people like me do just that.

    Thanks again for sharing that.
