I wanted to share this photo I took of SPD Officer Ryan Gallagher at SPD Officer Timothy Brenton’s memorial. Tomorrow, 10.31.13, will be the four-year anniversary of Officer Brenton’s murder. I lived in NYC during 9/11. Often, for me, it is on the night before the anniversary that I feel my most anxious and sad because of what was already in play and spend time wishing we could have stopped it. I am thinking of Tim’s family and friends, all of SPD. All the collective hearts that bleed for you now also send you love and strength and gratitude that so fine an officer served his public.
