"People sleep peacefully in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf." George Orwell
If you notice the flags at half mast today on government buildings and wonder why, it's National Peace Officer's Memorial Day. President John F. Kennedy designated May 15 as such in 1962. The calendar week in which May 15 falls is National Police Week. 133 officers were killed in 2008.
Today's etsy finds are some that pay tribute to those who serve and protect.
