2000: Gone, But Not Forgotten

It is the dawn of a new day,
Which begins a brand new year,
Let us not forget about those we lost,
Who died fighting what most fear.

149 Police Officers,
In the year 2000 lost their lives,
In their wake there are grieving children,
Widowed husbands and widowed wives.

72 died feloniously,
At the hands of evil men,
77 died in accidents,
As they were preparing to defend...

The liberties of the rest of us,
As we seek to be all we can be,
I am humbly reminded,
That freedom is not free.

It is my hope that the year 2001 will be,
A year of fewer Line of Duty deaths,
A year the wind of freedom that we breathe,
Is not the year of an officer's last breath.
