A very moving letter; I hope after four years she is still checking all the replies.

It's things like this that give me faith and strengthen my drive to become an officer. Moving letter. I'm grateful there are people out there like this.

This letter was sent to hundreds of politicians.... Its sad to say that none of them seem to care. I would like to thank everyone who has replied to her letter.  She still reads the replies and is still fighting for the Rights of Law Enforcement. Maybe one day she will be the politician that will get a bill passed to help Law Enforcement.

 What an intelligent, selfless young lady! As an active duty service member, I too wondered why the benefits of military service appear to outweigh and at times overshadow the contribution of our federal, state, and local law enforcement officers. True, we protect the country's interests abroad, but I would argue the equal importance of your sacrifice everyday. The domestic threat in my opinion is just as grave and challenging, and better recognition is due. I really applaud your daughter's observation and I pray our country will one day correct this obvious oversight.

Wow,  at only 10 yrs of age!? That's amazing! God has certainly blessed her with wisdom. Already standing up for a good cause. She's gonna make it in the future!

Dear Young Lady,


My name is Kevin and I am a soldier in the United States Army, I am looking to become a police officer when I leave the service, and my brother is also a police officer.  I have seen the wars through my own eyes overseas, but my brother has told me of the wars back home too.  Your letter is one of the most most well written comparison of the two.  Well written and well said.

LaDET says ...



It was her own words. She did it all by herself.. She is very intelligent.



 


Impressive indeed.     I have met many native english speakers who would have trouble articulating the point that she made.      She must be a wonderful young lady today.

 I sincerely hope that we now have better support for the police. If not the daughter should resend this letter to President Obama and I would gladly help with a lettter of my own.  She is truly inspiring me to do better things with my time such as writing a letter to the President of our country.  Thanks for sharing and I hope that you are blessed. God Bless America and everyone everywhere, we are afterall one people under one God.

  Written all those years ago, but the words still speak strongly. The sad truth is that even some veterans do not get the help they deserve. Veterans and police alike have sacrificed so much, but receive little if any in return. It is people like this little angle that will inspire some change.

She sent it to Obama.. Guess what? No reply! This letter has been emailed and mailed to numerous politicians.

 Sad to say but politicians don't seem to care about the needs of Law Enforcement. 13 years later and still nothing.
