The Thin Blue Line
The blue stripe on the bracelet symbolizes the police officer’s role in standing between those he has sworn to protect from those who would wish to do them harm. The cross symbolizes that our fate is in the hands of a higher power and “In God We Trust”.
Law Enforcement is near and dear to me; it’s in my blood. And although I knew it as an honorable profession, the dangers we faced in the previous decades are not the same as those faced by today’s officers, one of which is my son. I was very surprised and proud when he announced his intention to become a police officer, but as a mother I was concerned not only with the physical danger he faces but with the atmosphere of persecution of police that seems to prevail in our society today.
