Here is a poem for all those who we have lost.
 
"In The Line of Duty"
 
I Never thought it would be me,
my name for all of Eternity.
recorded here at this hallowed place,
alas my name, no more my face.
“In The Line Of Duty” I heard them say,
My family now paying the price to pay.
My folded flag stained with tears,
We only had those few short years.
The badge no longer on my chest,
I sleep now in eternal rest.
My sword i pass to those behind.
And pray they keep this thought in mind.
I never dreamed it would be me.
And with a heavy heart and a bent knee,
I ask for all here from the past...
....... 
 
Dear God, let my name be the last.

If not for the efforts of Fred Georgoulis, Steve Baglioni, and CBS Radio this song would not have been possible.


 

  In light of the recent tragedy that occurred in Boston last year on Marathon Monday, we have decided to reach out to all local law enforcement agencies and invite them to join this ride. As you all know, Officer Sean Collier of the MIT Police Department, was shot and killed while on duty by the same cowards responsible for the Boston bombings. I have personally met with Sergeant Sullivan of the MIT PD, who heads their department's motorcycle unit. He stated his department would be honored if, as part of the ride, we'll pay tribute to Officer Collier. One of Officer Collier's strongest passions was supporting the Jimmy Fund and all they do. For this reason, after the conclusion of the Marathon route, we will continue to the North Court at MIT, the sight where Officer Collier was killed, and place a wreath in his honor.

  We would love to see a heavy police turnout to honor Officer Collier and help support the cause he believed in so deeply. All that join will participate in the Second Annual Boston Motorcycle Marathon Ride. Our hope is that this ride will be an annual event so sign up and be part of history! The event will be 35 dollars per motorcycle and 10 dollars per passenger. A hundred percent of the proceeds will go to Dana Farber. At this point, we are trying to get a head count to give to Dana Farber. Please join us to help fight the fight. Festivities will follow at Marsh Post in Cambridge with entertainment, refreshments and food. Anyone that pre-registers will receive a 2014 Boston Motorcycle Marathon patch. Please pass this e-mail on to any department or individual that you think may be interested. More details will follow on our website.

 

Officer Sean Collier

  We are encouraging all Police Departments to ecourage Police Officers to pay tribute to their fallen brother. Only Police Officers will get a discounted rate of 25 dollars and a no passenger fee, that fee includes food and entertainment at Marsh Post in Cambridge. To receive a discounted rate you must make checks payable to Dana Farber/Jimmy Fund and send to PO Box 872, North Andover, MA 08145

Thank you for your time and we hope to see you on August 10, 2014. Sincerely, Fred Georgoulis
