National Police Memorial Day…

…is today. Last year (2007), 187 Police Officers were killed in the line of duty in the United States. With the exception of 2001, due to 9/11, it was the deadliest year for our nation’s Police Officers since 1989, and was a 38% increase over 2006. This year so far, thankfully, only 37 have been killed in the line of duty, a 51% DEcrease from last year at this point.

I encourage you, wherever you are today, to encourage a Police Officer and thank them for their selfless service. Unless you’re a hermit, almost all of us will pass by an Officer at some point today. Why not intentionally buy their lunch, a coffee, or at least say thanks for laying their lives on the line for you?
