I am only putting the beginning of this in here because I don't want to offend anyone, this was sent to me in an email;


 


For those of you who are Cops, you will find this very true.

  For those of you who aren't... this gives you a little insight

as to why we are, the way we are.

 

 

Always a Cop:

 

When a good cop leaves the 'job' and retires to a better life, many are jealous, some are pleased and yet others, who may have already retired, wonder.

  We wonder if he knows what he is leaving behind, because we already know.   We know, for example, that after a lifetime of camaraderie that few experience, it will remain as a  longing for those past times.

 

We know in the law enforcement life there is a fellowship which lasts long after the uniforms are hung up in the back of the closet .  We know even if he throws them  away, they will be on him with every step and breath that remains in his life.  We also know how  the very bearing of the man speaks of what he was and in his heart still is.

These are the burdens of the job.  You will still look at people suspiciously, still see what others do not see or choose to ignore and always will look at the rest of the law enforcement world with a respect for what they do; only grown in a lifetime of knowing.  Never think for one moment you are escaping from that life.  You are only escaping the 'job' and  merely being allowed to leave 'active' duty.


So what I wish for you is that whenever you ease into retirement, in your heart you never forget for one moment that 'Blessed are the Peacemakers for they shall be called children of God,' and you are still a member of the greatest fraternity the world has ever known.

I believe 99% of leos feel the closeness and will miss it as long as they live.You can take off the badge .but the job will never leave you.It is simply impossible to explain the meaning and if one hasn't been there it is difficult to understand the feeling.

I would like to read the rest of the email if it is not too personal. I won't be offended.
