For thousands of years, we have bestowed laurels, titles, and praise upon the warriors returning home victorious. From ancient Rome, when generals were preceded by flower girls covering their paths with rose petals, to modern day military leaders, honored with ticker tape parades. We honor them with symbols of peace, yet we never really see the heroes who walk among us every day, we only see these heroes when we become victims. They ask for little, yet give their all, sometimes even their lives, so that we may live in peace.
Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day. The calendar week in which May 15 falls, as National Police Week. National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others. Currently, tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world converge on Washington, DC to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
