And two more have fallen!
It has been a very sad time around my work over the last 10 days. Two of our young trained mounties have been shot in the line of duty. A huge manhunt was on to capture the suspect. Just today the man turned himself in, thank God. But sadly our 2 did not make it. It was reported on monday that they died over the weekend , within 2 hours of each other. How very sad. Both these mounties were parents of young children. As I watch our young cadets come for training to be RCMP officers, I'm so very proud, yet, at the same time I wish them safety. This is the second incident in a year where RCMP officers have been shot and killed in the line of duty. The questions that haunt me and many others, is how could this happen? What would drive a person to that much anger and hatred to kill. Never mind a police officer. I'm so very proud of our police. Whether they be RCMP, city police, armed forces, .... They put there lives on the line every day to protect people like you and me from those bad guys. So when the cadets are graduating and being sent out into the real world, I always say" go get those bad guys, but stay safe" My prayers are with the families of the 2 fallen officers. It is a very sad time.
