This has been a terrible week in Florida for all law enforcement. My thoughts and prayers go out to Deputy Forgione's family and the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office. I was sent the following when Officer Widman was shot and killed. I found it to be very true and inspiring. I hope that some of you may find some confort in the message as well.
Cop on the take
First he takes ... the oath.
Now look at what else he takes:
He takes... it in stride when people call him pig.
He takes... his lousy pay check realizing he'll never be rich.
He takes... a second job sometimes to make ends meet and support his family.
He takes... time to stop and talk to children.
He takes... your verbal abuse while giving you a ticket you really deserved.
He takes... on creeps you would be afraid to even look at.
He takes... time away from his family to keep you safe.
He takes... your injured child to the hospital.
He takes... the graveyard shift without complaint because it's his turn.
He takes... his life into his hands daily.
He takes... you home when your car breaks down.
He takes... time to explain why both your headlights have to work.
He takes... the job no one else wants--telling you a loved one has died.
He takes ...criminals to jail.
He takes... in sights that would make you cry. Sometimes he cries too, but he takes it anyway because someone has to.
He takes... memories to bed each night that you couldn't bear for even one day.
He takes... time to explain to his family why he can't make the ball game his child is in and why he has to work on the holiday when other parents are off.
Sometimes, he takes a bullet.
And yes, occasionally he may take a free cup of coffee.
If he is lucky, he takes retirement.
Then one day he pays for all he has taken, and God takes him.
Rest well our brother, God bless you Deputy Forgione, you have done your job now it's time to be at peace.
Ret. Major Nancy Olon
I'm sending you my deepest sympathy from Ft. Myers. May you find comfort in your memories and in the arms of your loved ones.
Peace be with you.
City of Ft. Myers PD
