Mr. K and I live in a medium size city, I guess. But this morning there was a shooting and a police officer was killed. My first reaction was to make sure that our good friend was safe, a quick check of his FB status told me so, but I still had concerns for the fallen officer and family.
A few hours later, when I was leaving the house, I realized the officer is my neighbor.
My heart sank, there must have been 30 officers in the street and yards near his home, most consoling one another and looking shocked. This is only the forth officer killed in the line of duty in our city's history. We only know the officer and his family from passing and a short hello once or twice. But I still feel horrible for his wife and two children.
So I am asking you all for prayers for this family. I know they have a very rough road ahead of them. I wish there was more I could do for them, and there might be, but as we all know prayers are important.

I will be praying for them. Even though you don't know them well, I think telling them how sorry you are and checking in on them once in a while would be appreciated. Maybe even a meal or ice cream for the kids...Just some ideas.
