Back The Blue

After Obama, I don’t expect much from presidents anymore. They’ll disappoint me, break promises, and outright lie, so when a POTUS goes out of his way to do the little things, I am appreciative. Donald Trump gives me that.

President Trump announced Monday that he’ll light the White House blue to honor police officers for Monday’s Peace Officer Memorial Day.

The president signed a proclamation Monday declaring the day “Peace Officer Memorial Day” and the upcoming week “Police Week.” At the signing ceremony, Trump said that he would also request that American flags fly at half-mast to memorialize fallen officers.

“During Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week, we honor the men and women of law enforcement who have been killed or disabled in the course of serving our communities. Police officers are the thin blue line whose sacrifices protect and serve us every day, and we pledge to support them as they risk their lives to safeguard ours,” Trump said in the text of the proclamation.

A president who appreciates police officers. What a concept.

  1. The prez is definitely on the right side of this issue. It was nice to see the White House bathed in blue last night. And, thank you to you, Wyatt, and your fellow police men and women and those in the sheriff’s dept. who keep us safe day in and day out.

  2. Very cool. I put a blue light bulb in my front porch light fixture about a year ago. I have been surprised at the number of people who comment about it. It’s a big deal to support cops and I wish there was more we could all do. Like METOO said, thank’s for your service!

  3. Metoo – Thanks. It was nice to see something good for a change instead of the constant MSM garbage.

    RG – You’re welcome. Our blue light burned out, but I like to remind the neighborhood what happens if someone tries to break in.
