The Jewish Link welcomes letters to the editor, which can be emailed to [email protected]
Letters may be edited for length, clarity and appropriateness. We do not welcome personal attacks or disrespectful language, and replies to letters through our website comment feed will not be posted online. We reserve the right to not print any letter.

On Wednesday, May 15, flags across the United States will be flown at half-staff in recognition of Peace Officers Memorial Day and in memory of all those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.

As time goes on, a police officer’s daily work and career become more difficult and complicated. We need to look no further than the daily news to read, hear and see that. Please take a moment to reflect on the past, present and future sacrifices of these men and women.

Next Wednesday, or on any day, when you see a police officer, please take a minute to say “thank you” and let them know that you value their service and commitment as they protect and safeguard our rights and property each and every day. Both you and they will be happy that you did.
