Well written from a 10 year old!  LaDet has one of the toughest jobs yet, being a single parent & a LEO at the same time.  God bless you and your family.  Stay safe sir.

LaDET says ...



This is a letter my daughter sent to the President April  2001


She totally amazed me with her words and concern for Law Enforcement Members.


Dear President Bush


My name is _____ K___ and I am 10 years old. I am the daughter of a police detective and was wondering why doesn’t government recognize police as they do war veterans. I truly respect all war veterans of this country as well as all police in this country. I find it difficult that this country doesn’t provide medical services for the police in the same way it does our veterans. It would be nice for our country to respect the police the same way as it does our heros of all wars for this country. The police fight a daily war on our streets and many lose their lives or are injured in the line of duty. War is declared when our military fights for our country and nothing is ever declared when the police fight for our communities, cities and states. There are thousands of police who lost their lives fighting for the rights of our people.


Mr. President please help our police departments with providing a United States Law Enforcement Veterans Organization, which can provide medical assistance for our heros in this great country.


I am in no way comparing the veterans of war to the police, but I believe that the police are also veterans of war in our communities.


I don’t believe that there is much difference in the types of war that the police and veterans have fought and are still fighting, but the war on our streets will never end. The police will continue to fight for our wellbeing and our rights for protection against the criminals in this country.


I would be very pleased if you, Mr. President, would help our police with medical assistance in the same way as our great country does for our war heros.


Mr. President, my dad is a single parent who raises me and my 14 year old brother and works many of overtime hours to pay our bills and protects our Great State of Louisiana.


It would be nice if our country would show more respect for men and women that serve in our GREAT AMERICAN COUNTRY!




Sincerely


_____ K___




PS….PLEASE READ THIS LETTER AND THANK YOU




GOD BLESS THE USA



You raised a wonderful and insightful daughter.  I know you are proud.  Tell her thank you for me please.

Agree 100%.  LEO's and first responders deserve much more in the terms of pay and benifits.  Military veterans also need better services and access to the services.  I'm a nurse and I see a lot of young Iraq and Afghan vets that can't get home health, physical therapy, ect...things need to change.  It sounds like you have a wonderful daughter, be proud......

I may not be a police officer yet, but it is my dream to be one. This young lady has touched my heart and only makes my urge to serve this community and state and country even more of an aspiration in my heart. I am 21 years old and I may not know what it is like to do what most if not all of you do out there everyday but this young lady expresses what I and probably the rest of America would love to be said about you fine ladies and gentlemen. I pray that you all fare safe and well in your everyday endeavors and may God bless you all.

Last year a drug dealing thug broke my cheekbone.  My five year old daughter worries that I'm going to be hurt day in and day out now.  The little girl who wrote this has an amazing insight.  It is almost sad that she is so perceprtive.  What strikes me as even more sad than that is this, it took a child to say it.  We should be a family, our own band of brothers (and sisters).

This letter is fantastic.  One thing I noticed:  your daughter loves you very much.  She realizes what you and all policemen go through each day.  National/international wars end......community wars never end, they get worse.  I believe that all of us should fight for the rights of policemen's medical issues.  Your daughter makes a good point.

Wow. Thats an amazing letter. Your daughter sounded so knowledgable and mature. It amazes me how smart kids really are and how much they are aware of. Alot of time parents think that the kids don't know whats going on in the home but they do. Your daughter is a great kid. Thanks for the share.

Wonderfully well written letter.  She should send it to your Senator and Congressman too.
