When a cop is shot, it’s as if the whole family has been struck by the same bullets. Long after the initial surge of compassion and prayer has passed, the family is left alone to deal with the demons Satan has assigned them. Most families will eventually recover; others will have lasting effects that haunt them forever.
The remedy? Faith. There’s a reason why cops are known as God’s Warriors and why we look to St. Michael the Archangel to lead us in battle. He defeated Satan in the heavens; he will do the same thing here on earth.
This story is true, and others like it are happening with more frequency than ever before. Sadly, there are also officers who suffer fatal wounds. In memory of those fallen heroes, National Police Week is celebrated May 15 – 21st. Officer fatalities are up 20% in 2011. Please remember not only our departed Warriors, but their loved ones left behind.
