A Thank You to Our Police Officers

police-car-490677_1920

The words “thank you” don’t seem worthy to express my gratitude, but they are the only words I have.

Thank you for running towards danger when most are running away.

Thank you for your bravery.

Thank you for your families that support you day in and day out.

Thank you for believing in something greater than your own safety so that we may live without fear.

Thank you that you show up when no one else will.

Thank you for protecting the people who are protesting the very job you do.

Thank you for showing up to work everyday knowing that there are people who will fight against you.

Thank you for your dedication to community.

Thank you for putting your life on the line every day.

Thank you for being someone my kids can look up to.

I want you to know that my family is behind you. I know there are millions of other families just like mine. In spite of differences, in spite of other opinions, we’ve got your back because you have ours. #alllivesmatter

Thank you.
