Home / Band News / Condolences to our Comrades in California…


gold-starOn behalf of the members of the Wake & District Public Safety Pipes and Drums – we would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and co-workers of the law enforcement professionals from California who were killed in the line of duty this past week while trying to bring a madman to justice. In the words of Abraham Lincoln – “…I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom…”

One of those murdered included San Bernardino Deputy – and Inland Empire Emerald Society piper – Jeremiah MacKay.
