We will keep fighting the same way my husband had to assist those seven officers every day and the way every law enforcement has my back and the backs of my children. I promise you that I will have your six do not back down. Keep fighting, keep remembering how much you are appreciated, how much you are needed and how much we care about you PETE our next guest delivering a powerful message to law enforcement at a back, the blue rally in long eye, land New York, where its estimated over a thousand people gathered to honor officers and their families LISA joins me now. Thank you so much for being here. First of all, thank you for the commitment and service and sacrifice of your husband and your family. He was killed in the line of duty doing his job for the rest
of us. You carry on his legacy today, talk to us about why you held Thrallingly and what youre stand this rally and what youre standing for the rally was supported and run by law enforcement officers, an organization that supports survivors of police officers. For me, it was so vitally important to make sure they know how much we appreciate them and really support them. They need our support. More than ever, PETE Lisa would Paul recognize. The position of our country expect indictment, thats being made against police today. This, I think so you know every officer is feeling the wrath of the tragedy that took place and like in any profession. There are bad people in each of those PETE every profession. Yes, every profession, yes thank you,
and so I think that we have good people in our profession. We have good people in law enforcement and they should not be punished for the actions of others. You know our officers sacrifice every single day. They leave their families, their new or borns, their dying and elderly parents to be there in communities supporting people that they dont know. Pete in your case, LISA Paul that day left, I believe, a three and a 4 year old to go do his job. Ultimately, your children whats the morale of families that see this environment and the officers that leave their house every day. We are heart, broken over the fact that we are seeing whats happening across the nation, and we want to be able to do something about it. We want to be able to speak up because we dont want anyone else being in our tragic situations. Pete. Where do you think this goes? Do you think we have an opportunity to rally the nation
in support of law enforcement officers? Youre doing your part? Well, you know, I certainly hope so. I think that the silent are majority needs to be heard. I think that its important for our communities, our cities and certainly our nation, to understand this is not about political agendas but its about being human beings and caring for one another and making sure that we treat each other with kindness and respect and compassion always PETE well said. The thin blue line is a real thing. You know better than most. Yes, it is.
