On June 29th, a San Antonio police officer was shot in the face and later died at the hospital. His partner, Officer Julio Cavazos was shot in the chin, which ricocheted to his chest. Yet, Officer Cavazos still dragged Officer Moreno to safety.
You might have heard about this. A lot of Texas has. Many officers from other cities and counties have rallied to help cover calls and be part of the procession that took place July 7, 2017.
I just wanted to write a tribute because so many officers put themselves in danger everyday to protect us. An officer in New York was also shot execution style and the mayor wasn't there to support the family at the funeral. He was in Europe bashing President Trump.
I live in Texas, but I'm not stating specifically where. I have heard about Officer Moreno. Most of Texas has. He leaves behind three sisters, a brother, and his parents. His brother is also in law enforcement.
Dallas, Texas sent officers to patrol the city of San Antonio so the San Antonio police force could attend the ceremony for Officer Moreno.
We need to respect the officers who risk their lives everyday to protect and serve us. Officer Moreno walked up to a man due to robberies in the area. He just wanted to ask questions and it ended with the man shooting the officers first before shooting himself.
Please pray for Officer Moreno's family, friends, and fellow officers. This is a sad moment. Pray for the world. We need all the help we can get. America is in turmoil and we all need to turn to Jesus.
God bless Texas, America, the police, and God bless y'all.
