The Thin Blue Line

Posted by on September 5, 2015

This is written to honor law officer friends who have served and are serving, Randy Stone, M.O. Ikerd, Rob Savage, Lenny Wilson, Mike Noyes, Tim Lewis, Doug Rader, Tyler Reid, Ethan McCurley and all the others standing on the Thin Blue Line



They are brothers in blue, they have our back
When we or our neighbors are under attack

No matter their title no matter their role
Sheriff, law officers or highway patrol

As they leave for work, their loved ones say prayers
For God to watch over and keep them in His care

They respond to shootings, robberies and fights
And wonder what lurks ’round the corners at night

As they pull over a car speeding down the highway
Approaching they wonder if this might be the day

Risking their lives for friends and for strangers
They do what they love in spite of the dangers

It’s not about hate, wealth, status or race
But making our world a far better place.

What would happen if there were no one to call
No one to arrest those breaking the law

We must each show respect, each do our part
It’s about goodness, character and content of heart

They vowed to guard against law breakers and crime
Standing between good and evil, the Thin Blue Line
