"The Creation of Peace Officers"
________________________________________

When the Lord was creating peace officers, he was into his sixth day of
overtime when an angel appeared and said,
"You're doing a lot of fiddling around on this one."
And the Lord said, "Have you read the spec on this order? A peace officer has
to be able to run five miles through alleys in the dark, scale walls, enter
homes the health inspector wouldn't touch, and not wrinkle his uniform.
"He has to be able to sit in an undercover car all day on a stakeout, cover a
homicide scene that night, canvass the neighborhood for witnesses,
and testify in court the next day.
"He has to be in top physical condition at all times, running on black coffee
and half-eaten meals. And he has to have six pairs of hands."
The angel shook her head slowly and said, "Six pairs of hands... no way."
"It's not the hands that are causing me problems," said the Lord, "it's the
three pairs of eyes an officer has to have."
"That's on the standard model?" asked the angel.
The Lord nodded. One pair that sees through a bulge in a pocket before he asks,
"May I see what's in there, sir?" (When he already knows and wishes he'd taken
that accounting job.) "Another pair here in the side of his head for his
partners' safety. And another pair of eyes here in front that can look
reassuringly at a bleeding victim and say, 'You'll be all right ma'am, when he knows it isn't so."
"Lord," said the angel, touching his sleeve, "rest and work on this tomorrow."
"I can't," said the Lord, "I already have a model that can talk a 250 pound
drunk into a patrol car without incident and feed a family of five on a civil service paycheck."
The angel circled the model of the peace officer very slowly, "Can it think?" she asked.
"You bet," said the Lord. "It can tell you the elements of a hundred crimes;
recite Miranda warnings in its sleep; detain, investigate, search, and arrest
a gang member on the street in less time than it takes five learned judges to
debate the legality of the stop... and still it keeps its sense of humor.
This officer also has phenomenal personal control. He can deal with crime
scenes painted in hell, coax a confession from a child abuser, comfort a murder
victim's family, and then read in the daily paper how law enforcement isn't
sensitive to the rights of criminal suspects."
Finally, the angel bent over and ran her finger across the cheek of the peace
officer. "There's a leak," she pronounced. "I told you that you were trying to
put too much into this model."
"That's not a leak," said the lord, "it's a tear."
"What's the tear for?" asked the angel.
"It's for bottled-up emotions, for fallen comrades, for commitment to that
funny piece of cloth called the American flag, for justice."
"You're a genius," said the angel.
The Lord looked somber. "I didn't put it there," he said.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

A Policeman's Prayer

Dear Lord, be with me on my beat
this day and every day.
Grant that each weary block I walk,
may ease a brothers way.
Let me be kindly to the old
and to the young, be strong~
But let me triumph over those
whose acts are cruel and wrong.
And if according to your plan,
I am to lose my life,
Please bless with your protecting hand
my children and my wife.

God bless your family.

We saw you sitting so bravely and so respectfully at the Pittsburgh City County Building. You must know how proud Officer Mayhle would be of all of you for sitting by his side and being there for him when you must all have been feeling so sad.

As a citizen of Brookline Officer Mayhle was a shinging example to young and old alike of how a man ought to behave in this day and age. How sad we all are now to know that young people have lost yet another shining example of courage and determination and positivity in this world.

God bless you all and know that the city of Pittsburgh is behind you 100 per cent and will do anything you ask of us should the need arise.

Bless you all,

My heart grieves for you, your extended family, friends, and colleagues. May the Lord hold you and guide you through your pain and loss.
KDKA reported about the innocent question of a child and that question touched me so deeply, I needed to write this.
I pray that daughters always know how much their Daddy will always love them.

Innocence

“Will Daddy be dead forever?”
So innocently asked
Of a Mother whose heart is broken
By a sorrow that can’t be masked

How do we help a child understand?
What exactly do we say?
As we try to soften the evil act
That took her Daddy away

“Will Daddy be dead forever?”
Oh, the tears that those words bring
Knowing he won’t be here
As you grow, as your soul sings

His love will always be with you
Even as his pictures fade
He’ll be your special angel
A part of him has stayed

“Will Daddy be dead forever?”
Oh, sweet, innocent child
You spoke those words to a grieving city
And the Lord looked down and smiled

“Your Daddy came to Heaven
I needed him with Me
His bravery bought him glory
And the ability to see”

“Will Daddy be dead forever?”
No, he will always be your eyes
Even as the memories fade
His love will keep you wise

His love will grow within you
His spirit, his strength, his voice
And as you grow and understand
He did not leave by choice

“Will Daddy be dead forever?”
He’ll live on through you
And through God’s loving grace
He’ll guide you in all you do

Silent Siren

A call came in and you went out
Protect and serve is what you are about.
A simple knock at a civilian’s door
Shook an entire city to its core.

Red and blue lights dimmed this moment
And the blaring siren suddenly fell silent
Family, friends we all mourn
Three heroes lost 2009 April 4

For those dressed in blue
Can’t deny these feelings as true
Tears and comfort with each other
These are truly sisters and brothers.

When you reach the peace we earthly ones await
As you are welcomed through Heaven’s holy gate
Know we will never forget Fathers, Brothers and Sons
And thank you for the brave job you have done.

Your badge will never lose its shine
Your memory always in our mind
As a fitting and just tribute
Hand to forehead is the only salute!

I do not know you but I cannot get your picture out of my head. My heart goes out to your family, especially your children. This was a tragic, tragic situation that should have never happened. I was taught never to question why, but this time I did! Why did this have to happen? My thoughts and prayers are with your family especially your children. They played "knocking on heaven's door" on the radio the other day in your honor and it gave me chills. I know you are not knocking on heaven's door, you are sitting there with God looking down on your loved ones, watching over them. God bless your family and especially your children.

Please accept our deepest sympathies for you and your family in this most difficult times. There are no words that can be spoken to comfort you, but please take some comfort knowing that many are praying for your family at this time. As a mother and wife of two firefighters, I understand the heroism and courage Stephen had being a policeman. As we morn the loss of the physical being, cherising the memories left behind will always keep Stephen close to your hearts. He died doing what he loved the best and that was protecting others.
