RD, I hope you can find a new piece of humanity, maybe at home. I know it's an occupational hazard, but we need our LEOs to stay as human(e) as possible. R

It never gets better and only time scars the wounds in the mind.
I've seen my father die, my grandmother, my two aunts.
I've also seen things in the military that man or woman should never see.
It hurts.

Please be kind to, and have compassion for, yourself, RD.

I read this and cried. For you, not me. I cannot come up with any words of comfort. Sending out prayers for you. Thank you for all that you do.

I watched a man die at a highway collision that happened about half a mile in front of me last summer. I could do nothing to help him and within a few minutes he was gone. It's an awful thing to have to see.

All I can suggest is, just keep talking to the right people about it, those co-workers you really bond with, the spouse and make sure you go to the department critical incident debriefing if they have one. I'm sure you know all this, but it never hurts to be reminded.
