Thankful for community

Although the past two weeks have been heartbreaking and sad due to Trooper Chad Walker’s death for no reason by another individual, I have been reminded how thankful I am to live in a communi-ty that is always there no matter what.

I have been blown away at all of the support I have seen given to the Walker family by everyone in Groesbeck, Limestone County, Freestone County, as well as the rest of the state of Texas and even throughout the United States.

Above all, I see others praying for Trooper Walker´s family, friends, and community. Everytime that I turn around, I see another fundraiser for the Walker family that someone is doing to help them out during this time.

Last Thursday, I was driving through Fairfield about 1pm to go to a meeting, and I was in awe of all of the law enforcement officers and city officials lined up with their lights flashing as they remem-bered Trooper Walker. Agencies across the entire state of Texas observed a moment of silence to show respect and appreciation for Trooper Walker at the same time.
