A poem written in memory of fallen Houston Police Officer, Rodney Johnson, and penned as a tribute to all of our peace officers who have given their lives, in the line of duty, for the sake of our safety and freedom.

To make a donation to the 100 Club Houston, an organization that assists the families of fallen police officers and firefighters, please click the link below the poem. Thank you.




Upon the Lord’s hallowed and glorious ground
Resides a location where heroes are found
Each servant, an angel, who answered his call
To make the world safer for one and for all
These servants were special, dedicated and strong
Assisting our region to right worldly wrong
Their tasks were uncertain; their struggles were grand
But, each helped our nation by taking a stand.


These servants were given a predestined goal
To protect the interests of each earthen soul
While upholding peace and the laws of the land
As sent forth from Heaven by God’s own command
Each knew that their mission held peril and grief
From which there would often be little relief
And still, they trudged forward; one purpose in mind
To make this day better than each left behind.


Within the Lord’s hallowed and glorious home
Resides a location where true heroes roam
Each servant, an angel, who answered his call
Defending our freedom by taking a fall
These servants were special, committed and brave
And their sense of honor lives beyond the grave
To this world, they were brothers and God’s chosen few
Yet, their selfless acts prove they were angels in blue.

I have respect for all the servants of man who lay their lives on the line unselfishly every minute of everday. They help me and my family sleep better at night. When they are killed in the line of duty our hearts are heavier and we grieve as though they were part of our families too. Thank you for this wonderful tribute.

Thank goodness Houston isn't Baghdad. Beautiful tribute, Jill. I remember when one of our TSU force, Lt. Kuykandahl, was shot in the head while off-duty entering the Eastex in his car.

A fantastic tribute to a group of people world wide who only get noticed when one dies in service or a black sheep surfaces. Well said my young friend.
