“A Hero is someone who has given their life for something bigger than oneself.” There are no words to explain the grief a child feels when a parent loses their life. Nor do those words exist for the spouse, the family, friends or community when a hero is lost. Words are simply never enough. The feelings and emotions when one of our own first responders is lost are as diverse as the people they protect. And while we process the loss differently, we share our respect for what they go through. The physical and emotional impact on their families, their marriages, and especially their own mental health is overwhelming. What can never be questioned is that their life was purposeful, meaningful, and filled with grace. They are loved. In their sacrifice lies a truth to all humanity…that there is no greater sacrifice than to give your life for another. We are humbled by their dedication, their willingness to face all fears, to put their lives on the line so that we may rest safely at night.
Our hearts are broken for the loss of another hero in our community! As in previous years, we now honor Officer Desai and his family by activating #OperationHCBlue, a campaign to support the children/family of fallen police officers in our community. To show your support for him and his family, we are asking the community to help us Raise the family up and show our love and appreciation by placing a blue bow on your mailbox.
PLEASE Help us color our community blue – to support the family of our fallen hero, and to let our Blue Family know that we care. We value their service. We can never thank them enough for their sacrifice. Through #OperationHCBLUE, you can order a blue bow and/or a yard sign using the link below. We have listed many pickup locations throughout the county. Please take your receipt for pick-up. 100% of the proceeds will benefit the children of Officer Desai.
