Chief Mark Doyle

I want to leave my condolence for this brave one of many brave officer doing his JOB ! In God's economy, our sufferings never have to be wasted. As Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 1:3-4, "the Father of compassion" not only comforts us because He feels our pain and wants to heal us; He also plants within us seeds of His kindness and caring so that one day we will be able to share what we've received with people who need consolation. We are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus that reach out and go to a hurting world. As we touch others who are in distress, we become a link connecting them with God's unfailing love.

After reading so many tributes on the MIT sites, Sean exemplified the quote etched in stone at the Police Memorial in Washington, DC;

"It is not how these officers died that made them heroes, it is how they lived."
