This week is National Peace Officer's Memorial Week to commemorate those who have given their lives in the line of duty. Thankfully, no officers died this past year in Wisconsin. Nonetheless, the ceremony was very moving.
The Governor issued an Executive Order for the flags to be flown at half-staff in honor of all those who have fallen.
Flags are flown half-staff today at the State Capitol (Madison, WI)
If any of you know police officers, you know that they could come across anything anytime. Most of us go to work, sit at a desk, and have a routine where nothing too unexpected can happen. But these men and women are out on the streets, highways, risking their lives to protect us. Even a routine traffic stop is full of uncertainty. It's important to just take a moment and reflect on what they do and pause to remember those who have died in the line of duty.
Two more tulip pictures I took today. Most of the tulips are gone, as the squirrels have eaten them! Only stalks are left.
I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend. I am going to head to the farmer's market tomorrow (if the weather is nice)(Hopefully I can avoid the crazy traffic because it's graduation weekend.. ugh....)
Do you go to the local farmer's market? What are your favorite items to buy? Who are are favorite vendors?
