A Worried Mother!

Years ago as a young mother of five children and thinking about their careers when they got older... I always thought to my self how could parents, especially Mothers endure the worry of a child who was a police officer or firefighter!  And here our family is...Joe a Fire Fighter and Walker a Police Officer!! My worse nightmare come true!
Every sense my kids were little, when  I would hear of a death of a public servant my heart would just ache for the family. I would see the family on TV and I was always just so sad for the family and wondered how will they go on knowing their child chose this line of work and because of this they are dead!  I never could get it off my mind! Their son or daughter went to work and did not come home. I know there has been other work related deaths....but they are accidents, not murders! I know it is the choice of a man or women to choose this line of work but...Why do you think they choose to be a public servant. Pay....NO. Hours.NO, for the beauty of it,NO....what a police officer or firefighter sees in a day of work is something they will never forget!!! And something we never talk about!!! It stay with them. Men and Women choose this line of work because they what to serve and protect, They take an Oath with that badge!! They put their life on the line with just about  every call they go to.
People want to talk about how terrible Police officers are but, they are the first to call a Police Officer or Fire Fighter when help is needed!! Don't get me wrong there are some that might abuse their authority but, in a article I read.....It said LESS than 1% of the men and women in Blue!
So As I looked at this picture Walker had posted a few days ago I keep going back to it! Officer Stewart was called to a home to help in a Domestic Violence situation and was murdered as he walked in for no reason other than he was a cop! Just like The two officers in New York, sitting in their car eating by them selfs,. and so many others....They are murdered because they are cop, public servants and someone called them for help most of the time and all the rest of the time, again they are murdered because of the uniform!!! Just like the Fire Fighters last week in Phoenix who were called out for a welfare check and as they walked in a man open fired. Thankfully no one was killed only a life saved on the person they were making a welfare check on!
I could go on forever..and I am sure Joe and Walker will not like this post from their mother but I just can't help my self! I have never ranted on facebook before and will try not to do it again but...I do want to share why our boys and all the other men and women choose this line of work! They chose this line of work serve and protect the public.They want to help and make a difference! So this is where I have had to just surrender to God. and HIS will to protect my boys and all of there other men and women who serve and protect here in our country and all those military men and women who protect and fight for our freedoms all over the world!!!
Today I pray for Officer Stewarts family to endure their pain the best way possible and to find peace and forgiveness in their hearts in this most trying time of their lives!
Today my heart is full as I know more children are coming into Walker and Melanie's home. It is my prayer that none of my grandchildren will never have to endure the loss of their daddies!!
I could not be more proud of Joe Scheurn and Walker Scheurn!!!! I hold a prayer in my heart constantly for your safe return home to your families after EVRY shift you work!!!
Tom and will continue to pray for all the men and women who serve and protect the public!! I would encourage all to join Tom and I in this prayer!!!!
Again....May Officer Stewart Rest in Peace! We thank you for the service you gave and not only the service but your life!!! Thank you!
