I was stuck in traffic for 15 minutes or so earlier today, and I was cursing my luck, figuring some traffic accident was up ahead and I was in the middle lane, unable to turn around. Then squad car after squad car came through, lights on, and I realized they were escorting a fallen officer. So many police cars! It changed my perspective dramatically, as I thought about how police officers suit up every day and go to work knowing this could happen to them. An unexpected, somber moment.
