3-3-12Twenty-seven stars adorn the sandstone boulder, denoting the law enforcement officers from southern Nevada who gave their lives in the line of duty. I have read on the internet for the research for my visit, the bios of these Heroes. Some of them died from traffic accidents but the number one cause was by gunfire. This violent means has been on the rise over the past couple of decades. The Kindness Bicycle Ride for Heroes will hopefully draw attention to this fact. Children needs to learn and respect police, so as adults they help rather than harm. The park in which this beautiful memorial sits, overlooks North Las Vegas, one of the towns they helped to protect.
On my travels today, on three separate occasions, I met a WW II, Korea and an Active duty servicemen. The pride of these men was apparent, as they talked of honor and freedom. All of them offered their own opinion of how very important it is to honor, thank and never forget these returning Wounded Warriors.
