What a wonderful Poem! Thank You for sharing ... I dont yet know the Honor to wear the Badge, but Ive know all my life "It is" a second family of which you are proud! No matter where I have been over the years it has been a bond Ive shared just being a Officers Daughter!
about 5 years ago
It is polished and shiny and looks so fine.
Once you earn it you have to tow the line.
The minute you wear it upon your chest
it becomes a symbol that you are the best.
It means honesty, integrity, and fairness to all.
Your life is never your own, but at the publics call.
Night or day, any hour, it makes you a mark.
It doesn't protect you from a shot in the dark.
Over the years the shine starts to fade,
but brighter still is the man its made.
It is often what separates you from the crowd.
It is a second family of which you are proud.
Thank You and Have a Safe and Wonderful Weekend!
PS any advise for Me would be appreciated, If you read my "about me" you will know a little more of what I may know, or not..lol . I pray that OI get the call next week to meeet the Chief and get the job. I know there is a alot of seasoned officers out there whom may be appling too, so it will be tough.
Thank You Again
