I know that some here view the police force with contempt and disgust. I am not one of those people, they assist in preserving my life as best they
can most days of the week.
Today in Australia it is Police Remembrance Day and I felt the need to post a little something in honour of the sacrifice that they make in order for
us to live our lives in relative peace and safety.
Without them we are nothing and to others they are husbands and wives, fathers and mothers, friends and lovers. They are people just like you and me
with the same wants and the same needs but people who will, in the face of dire threat to life and limb, choose to strive forward to uphold the sworn
oaths they have taken and protect the communities within which they also live.
Some of them have paid the ultimate price for that commitment and it is to those very people their families and colleagues that I say, thank you.
