There are times when the words shared by another need not be edited or expounded upon in any way, because the feelings conveyed are heartfelt, pure, and deserve sharing unadulterated. The following is from a Facebook post shared on Sunday at 5:36 a.m. from someone on the Bangor Maine Police Department. Here it is in its entirety:

"Not a great week to be a cop, more importantly, not a great week to be the wife or child of a cop.

Thank you to all police officers and first responders who put their lives on the line every day to help save another.
