Where You Rest

In this quietude, this respect, a place for the sparrows' songs, where the marble garden is gleaming white in afternoon's sun, and luminous in the comfort, the sleepiness of moonbeams, where you rest. Young women, you wore the blue, the color, the banner of your bravery, when your blood ran, fallen, souls released, joyous, to the infinity of the heavens, where you rest. In Loving memory of Natalie Corona, Chateri Payne, and all other fallen police officers.

What a wonderful tribute; we must remember when others are running out of towers that are on fire or imploding, the police officers and firemen are running in to help people! Lovely.
