I’m the mother of a wonderful 5 year old son, and I’m taking the year off from teaching AP Language and Composition at the high school level. On June 15th, 2013, I lost the love of my life to a line of duty death. My husband was killed in a hit and run accident while he was working as a police officer. This blog follows my grieving and healing process. As well as it follows my attempts to continue to honor my husband’s sacrifice. I’ll not only discuss being a vital part of the law enforcement community, but I’ll also discuss the every day joys and trials of being a mommy.
