Wedding Shower Of Vigilance

GROUND ZER0, New York, N.Y.--Aug. 23, 2003--
Today celebrates our younger daughter's wedding shower.
She's the star of the event, and in her purse is a 9mm Glock
just in case the Beast of Terror shows up and tries to be a
For the past five years in New York City, she's been prowling the
streets during the night and day in search of the Beast's footprints.
She's part of a federal, state and local undercover team that ferrets
out criminals seeking to destroy the moral and lawful fabric of
But today, she's glowing, as any soon-to-be
'shower hat' made up of bows from received gifts
It's her wedding shower, and the Sentinels of
Vigilance are smiling down upon her.
Her mission in life has been to find the Beast of
Terror and all his many demon cohorts and "bust them" so they are
rendered impotent to inject their venom into the veins of a vulnerable
society. Her work takes her to the seediest of all parts
of New York City where she sits waiting for the Beast to raise his
head, expose his weaknesses so her task force can swoop down like eagles and
sink their talons into those who would harm the Parents, Grandparents,
Loved Ones and Citizens of Vigilance when they least expect it.
It is an honor for both my wife and I to see the
sun of love shine on our daughter's beautiful face, igniting it with a
passion for life that only matrimony brings to those who believe the
Gordian Knot that keeps the Beast at bay is the family, and all it
She is a stalwart Sentinel of Vigilance in her
field, going to work early and coming home late into the wee hours
with no overtime or kudos, for her job is about being a sentry for
Law enforcement, whether at the federal, state or
local level, is a profession that tests one true skills at serving the
public. Unlike many jobs, each and every day she risks her
life because the people she seeks to arrest are willing to kill those
trying to stop them.
Not many jobs require a willingness to die for others
so that they and their families may be safe. But hers is
one of those.
I sat with her today while she was getting her nails
done. I guarded her purse. Inside it was her
weapon, a 9mm Glock, the smaller version. It was a gift
from her mother and myself, to go along with the larger one that she
is issued as part of the job.
Not too many parents get to give their daughter a gun
when they launch their careers. Most give nice pen and pencil
sets, or watches, or perhaps a new car, or a nice wardrobe.
But a nice, small Glock was a prized gift when our daughter entered
the federal law enforcement system and began her career of undercover
work against "street Terrorism."
A Shower of
Vigilance was held for two Sentinels of Vigilance
About a year ago she met another
Terror-Hunter. He was retiring after twenty years on the
force. They kept their engagement a secret from fellow workers
until last week when the wedding invitations were sent out.
They met doing undercover work.
Now, he's finishing up his degree to teach
Both have served their city, state and nation by
putting many Street Terrorists in jail and slowing the flow of crime
that streams its way into everyone's neighborhood.
Crime Terrorism is like any other type of Terrorism.
It seeks to instill Fear, Intimidation and Complacency in all it
touches. But Terror-Hunters bring Courage,
Conviction and Right Actions for the Children's Children's Children to
bear heavily on the Triad of Terrorism. And, they
win the battle each time they put the manacles on a "bad guy" or "bad
gal" and stop them from feeding the vermin of crime any fatter.
I salute our daughter and her soon-to-be
May they always be Sentinels of Vigilance.
