The Thin Blue Line

Seven years ago Officer Jason Ellis started with the Bardstown Police Department. Today, Officer Ellis will be laid to rest. He is the hero of a loving wife and two sons; not to mention the countless citizens of Bardstown. Today his k9 partner Figo will stand guard and wonder where he is. But will forever know that something is different.

On Saturday morning Officer Ellis was ambushed after stopping on his way home to pick up debris from the roadway. Not out at a domestic, not on a traffic stop, not arresting a criminal but doing a deed to maintain the safety of others. These are the deeds, that so many forget very quickly. In which they go far beyond their measure, to make sure we get home safely.

But where is our safety for them? Why would some coward hide in the bushes to ambush this officer in the middle of the night? Because he/she/they are simply just that, a coward.

I lie in bed and thank God for sending both of my boys home each night. Because I can never imagine the pain that his wife and boys are feeling. The look in her eyes, made chills run up my spine, but when she stated that her husband will forever be her hero I could not help but to smile. Because she is right. Our Husbands are heroes and we are their biggest fans.

I pray for justice to be served and for Officer Ellis' family to be able to rest easy knowing that this coward will be found. Please remember this family, department, brothers/sisters in blue, his k9 partner and the entire community as they move forward from this tragic cowardly act of aggression towards Bardstowns finest.

As a wife of a police officer, I'm literally crying reading this. I simply cannot imagine.

Praying for Officer Ellis' family. Thankful for men like him.

Oh my gosh that is horrible and so scary! There are so many things in the world today that frankly scare the shit out of me, and raising kids!

I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
