To the Editor,
I am writing to honor Jeremiah Goodson and his family.
This is such a tragic loss that touched the whole city’s heart — a senseless crime committed, leaving a family torn apart. An officer, a friend, a husband, and a father who we all lost on that dreadful day.
There are simply no words to express all we could say, for we lost a hero, a brother in blue on that hot July day. It’s nonsense and uncalled for, but let this occurrence make us all raise the bar, for when you see one of our heroes pass you by on the street, please do not hesitate to greet, don’t turn the other way..
For tomorrow they may do for you the unthinkable, they may have to lay down their life. To protect and honor all they know is right, and do it for Jeremiah, our hero that gave his all.
And remember, even though he’s fallen, he will never be forgotten. In loving memory of Jeremiah Goodson Jr. End of watch 07-17-2012.
