A Moment of Silence

This post is very near and dear to my heart....as you can see in the picture below my grandson Christian is proudly wearing my Son his Uncles Police Uniform........
*My Son David*
*My Son-in-Law Jason*
and father of 5 of my grandchildren
and my Godson Darrell
are all Police Officers......
The terrible killing of 4 Police Officers here in Oakland last Saturday has brought so much sorrow to all the families, friends and our Community.......please keep them in your prayers....
and please say an extra prayer to keep my Boys
and all of our Officers and Public Servants safe and out of harms way....
Thank You,
With Much Love and Hugs,

That was horrifying to watch the news reports about those officers. One of our nephews is a CHP officer. We're always so worried for him. ♥

DEAR MO,
I THOUGHT OF YOU WHEN I HEARD THAT TERRIBLE NEWS STORY....SO MANY LIVES CHANGED IN A MOMENT FOREVER.
YOUR GRAND SON IN HIS DADDY'S POLICE UNIFORM WOULD MAKE A CUTE BUTTON TO PUT IN THE COLUMNS OF OUR BLOGS THAT WOULD HAVE A LINK BACK TO YOUR SIGHT BUT WOULD SAY....ABOVE THE PICTURE....PRAY FOR OUR POLICE OFFICERS AND THEN BELOW THE PICTURE...A CHILD DEPENDS ON IT....OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT....
BUT YES MO, I WILL PRAY EVERYDAY...AND FOR OUR FIREMEN AND PARAMEDICS.....THOSE THAT PUT THEIR LIFE ON THE LINE EVERY DAY.
I LOVE YOUR PLANTER....I HAVE A TRIKE LIKE THAT AND THE SEAT IS THE PLANTER.....EVERYTHING IS LOOKING SO PRETTY, MO.
WE ARE EXPECTING A SNOW BLIZZARD THAT COULD BRING 12 INCHES OF SNOW STARTING FRIDAY NIGHT HERE IN MY PART OF OKLAHOMA...OUR WEATHERMAN SAYS THIS IS ONE OF THOSE RARE BIGGIES ....

Mo, I didn't hear that on the news. That is horrible. My son is in law enforcement, and my son-in-law is a firefighter...you just never know what a day at work can bring.
Cute picture of your grandson.

Mo your little grandson looks so cute in his uncle's uniform. God bless our policemen and policewomen everywhere. They put their lives on the line. Even though I live in another state, I send my thanks to those in your family for their work and my prayers for their safety. Hope you are having loads of fun and relaxation on your trip!

They are heroes, so willing to protect other lives. I know how cute your grandson look in the picture but your story is sad. May their families find the comfort they need and may your family and others with families who has love ones who daily goes through these worries be always protected.

Mimi said...

In a heartbeat you'll get those prayers and many, many more. It always takes me to my knees when one of our public servants gives his or her life. You see, my son fights fires.

Annabelle said...

You and your family are in my prayers. Just last week a 15 year old pulled a gun on a 14 year old kid in my daughter’s high school…never heard so much of this back when I was growing up…my prayers go out to the families who have lost…

Hugs Annabelle

p.s. Your grandson looks adorable in blue!

My only son is a police officer in south Houston, an area riddled with gangs. Every time a police officer is killed, my heart cries out for their families. I will put your boys in my prayers along with mine.
