Last Friday I headed to Home Depot for track lighting. My son was happy, at camp.

Traffic was stopped at the big intersection of Georgia and Connecticut Avenues.

‘What could be happening?’ I thought…

And then I saw a Huge Motorcade of Police Motorcycles, and then Police Cars…  I’ve never seen a Funeral Motorcade that long, and unfortunately, I’ve seen a lot of funeral motorcades.

‘O God, it’s a Cop.’  I thought.

It was a police officer’s funeral procession.  It was the funeral procession for Hector Ayala, who died in a car crash while responding to a fellow officer’s call for assistance for a fight in progress…

…on Easter Morning.

I learned later that day that Sergeant Ayala’s widow, Melissa, has a 14-month-old son,

and is expecting triplets… in June.

And then I thought about her,

and it knocked the wind out of me.  It was like I had been punched, but no one was there.  I had trouble breathing for a moment, and then had to take a few, slow, deep breaths.
