When the life of a fallen hero meets an unfortunate situation, it becomes our job to protect and honour their memory in the best way possible. For many families, they are left unknowing what to do and how to grieve at a time like this.
Here are three ways to honour a fallen officer the right way.
Prepare the Memorial
Depending on just how well you know the officer there are plenty of options in how you can help prepare the memorial. You can start a fundraiser to help the families cover the expenses of the memorial. You can also invite others to share their tributes and mourners. Encourage others to contribute the additional necessities to the memorial such as flowers, foods, donations, notes, and more. This will be a great way to bring the community together.
The primary purpose of holding the memorial is to show your support and bring home to those involved with the law enforcement. Remember, the most important thing is to show respect and honour their memory in a positive light.
Donate To a Charity in Their Remembrance
Pay tribute to an officer’s memory by making a donation in honour of their memory. Donate to the local law enforcement or a special charity that the officer supports or is involved with.
Help Those Who Are Active
One of the best things we as citizens can do is to honour those who continue to risk their lives every day in the name of Justice is by offering to help those in uniform in any way possible. Show respect and appreciation for the law enforcement by living honestly and giving them a friendly hand if needed.
If you see them standing in line for coffee or a quick takeout, why not cover the tab? On top of everything, live well to provide a safe environment and respect those who take honour in preserving the safety of the community.
