How Young to Understand Death by Chris Richards

This photo was taken at the funeral of the first police officer killed while on duty in my city, Windsor, Ontario, in over 125 years. It was also the largest funeral in at least fifty years, if not longer. The officer’s children’s classes came, and as high school students we were paired up with them to watch them for the day. This was my student… I think he was ten at the time…

    The death of one of those whose job it is to protect us affects us all. They stand against all the insults unable to answer. Occasioanlly they get the chance to show support for each other and unfort a funeral is one of those occasions
