Police hall of fame field trip

This past Wednesday (4/06/11) we got together with a group of homeschoolers at the Police hall of fame in Titusville, FL. Great trip if you ask us. 57 police officers have been killed in the line of duty since the start of the year. Let's all THANK our officers who risk their life every day to protect us.

This car was the cruiser of a police officer who was killed just 3 weeks after coming to Florida to pay respect for another officer who was killed in the line of duty. The car was donated when his wife came to pay her respect to her husband when his name was added to the wall. She went home to have the car donated to the police hall of fame. The neat thing about the car is that at the officers memorial everyone who knew him wrote messages to him and then the car was clear coated to protect all the messages. My heart just hurt at this station. 9/11. These are parts of the World Trade Center. All the adults in the group had to touch these and NO ONE spoke.

Waiting in line to get in the police cruiser. K was really excited to sit in a police car.
