Neighbors Remember Three Fallen Police Officers

One year ago today(4/4),  three Zone 5 police officers, Eric Kelly, Paul Sciullo and Stephen Mayhle, were killed in the line of duty. Many city residents put blue light bulbs on the their front porches to honor these men.  I noticed a few more blue lights tonight. It’s after midnight and  I just drove back from Ohio. What a nice time I had with my family.   I was struck by the poignancy of the lighted blue star memorial and the 3 flags my Highland Park neighbors put in  front  of their home.  These thoughtful neighbors did not forget.  I thought how their families miss them, not just this anniversary but every day.

Not just a blue porch light. A whole lighted blue star on a big tree that someone sawed out of plywood..
