Pastor Greg Asimakoupoulos of Mercer Island Covenant Church submitted this poem:
Put a Blue Light in Your Window
Put a blue light in your windowfor those officers in bluewho were gunned down having coffee.It’s the least that we can do.
It’s a way of showing honorto their families who are leftwho must face the coming seasonfeeling lost, alone, bereft.
On these silent nights of sorrowas we take time to be stillthat blue light in the windowwill recall those who were killed.
Each with uniform allegianceto the force they proudly serveddied committed to our safetyand the laws they helped preserve.
So… to the green and red of Christmaslet us add the color blue.It will say to those now fallenwe will never forget you.
