Officer Down



It is with much regret that I inform you that Montgomery has lost another police officer. The officer that was in a wreck on January 15th succumbed to his injuries tonight. Please, please keep his family, friends, and "brothers and sisters" from the dept in your prayers over these next very difficult days.
Even though I didn't personally know Officer Broadway my heart is very broken tonight. I ask that you please remember these policemen and firemen that we often consider a nuisance and remember all they put at risk to keep us and our families safe.

***UPDATE***The link I posted above is to his 'Officer Down Memorial Page' page. Any officer killed in the line of duty anytime in America has a page posted there and you can leave a 'reflection' that will be put into book form and sent to his family. It is a really nice thing that is done and if you have a minute to go leave one it is a very nice memorial. I know I keep emphesizing it but I know that it is hard for people outside "the family" to understand how much the guys and their families give up to protect you and yours. Please try to keep them all in your daily prayers.
