This morning as I was stopped at a light on my way to work, no less than 50 police cars with lights flashing - from all over the state of Maryland - went by. While I had been hearing about this fallen officer all week, it wasn't "real" to me until then. I cried in my car as I thought about this officer and others, killed while working for a better city and a better state and a better country.
And this morning when I heard about all the roads closed and the delays that would be happening all day I was annoyed. Not anymore. For goodness sakes, sitting in traffic for an extra half hour isn't giving much compared to what this officer gave.
