To Honor A Hero

Today, Philadelphia is mourning. A devoted family man who was merely doing his job was murdered last week. Officer Chuck Cassidy unknowingly walked into an armed robbery and was immediately shot in the head. He died the next morning, surrounded by family and friends. His killer has been found and has confessed.
Many of us do not live in the City of Philadelphia, however we should let this sad moment remind us that those in law enforcement put their lives at risk everyday to keep us safe. They don't earn alot of money and rarely if ever complain. They do it because they want to do it. The sacrifices made by their families are incredible. Please remember the Cassidy family and all of those in law enforcement tonight.
