Tulsa Police Officers’ Memorial, 2017!

May 6, 2017

The first Saturday of May is the day that the Tulsa Police Department honors its fallen. This year marks the 100th year Anniversary of Tulsa’s first line of duty death (Sgt. John Herrod who died November 9, 1917, as the result of a gunshot wound when his pistol accidentally fell out of its holster).  Here is a touching version of “Amazing Grace” . . . rest in piece, brothers and sisters.   We will never forget.

Amazing Grace!

It is no secret that I really appreciate and enjoy the song “Amazing Grace.”  So whenever I find a new version, sharing is just second nature.  Here is an awesome version by the group Home Free.  Enjoy!

Flute, Violin, and Bagpipe!

Happy Friday! Here is an “amazing” rendition of Amazing Grace involving Andre Rieu (on violin) and Teun Ramaekers (on piccolo/fife).  Unfortunately, I’m not sure who’s playing the bagpipes so I cannot give her a shout-out at this time.

Some Inspiration!

I’m always on the lookout for new versions/renditions of “Amazing Grace,” so when I ran across this pan flute one, I just had to share.  Enjoy!  The scenery is not too shabby either.

With My Life If Need Be . . . !

Today we honor Tulsa’s Heroes — those police officers who have given the ultimate sacrifice to our city having died in the line of duty.   This is always an emotional event, but an important one.  And, lest we forget, here is the Oath of Office that every officer takes when they are sworn in:

OATH OF OFFICE
I, [name], having been duly appointed a Police Officer of the City of Tulsa, and a Peace Officer of the State of Oklahoma, do solemnly swear, that I will defend, enforce, and obey the Constitution and Laws of the United State, the State of Oklahoma, and the Charter and Ordinances of the City of Tulsa.

That I will obey the lawful orders of my superior officers and the regulations of the Tulsa Police Department.

That I will protect the Rights, Lives, and Property of all citizens and uphold the honor of the Police Profession.WITH MY LIFE, if need be.

This I solemnly swear.

We remember, and we honor each and every one of our fallen brothers and sisters.

Amazing Grace!

Happy Friday!  Here is a little something to get you ready for the weekend.  I really love a cappella singing, and there is no greater song than “Amazing Grace,” in my humble opinion.  So, allow me to share a new version that crossed my radar screen lately.  Enjoy!

Amazing Indeed!

Here is an a capella rendition of “Amazing Grace” (courtesy of Celtic Thunder) that is truly wonderful.  I love this song, and I love a capella, so this is a double love.  Enjoy!

Amazing, Indeed!

This rendition of Amazing Grace is simply beautiful.  And while I prefer vocal performances, every now and then an instrumental version comes along that is truly remarkable.  And, the scenic backdrop isn’t too shabby either.

Amazing Grace!

Following a week of hiking the Grand Canyon, I am truly humbled by the glory of God and his amazing grace. Here’s an inspiring version of “Amazing Grace” (ala Celtic Thunder), of course, I have not yet found a version that I haven’t liked.
