RIP Sgt. Steve Perez…a true hero. August 29, 2017

PerezAs a Texan in the greater Houston area I have been dealing with Hurricane Harvey for the past few days. I have seen amazing generosity from Texans and other Americans and, unfortunately,  I have seen some who want to take advantage of those in need. Overall, I have witnessed amazing charity.  I learned today that Sgt. Steve Perez of the Houston Police Department lost his life while trying to go to work in early Sunday morning.  He was a victim of floodwaters.  Sgt. Perez was a veteran of the HPD for 34 years and was heading into the storm as he said (according to his wife) “I have work to do…”  Sgt. Perez tried for 2.5 hours to get to his location until he was overtaken by flood waters.  I want to thank Sgt. Perez for his service and sacrifice.  Our Heroes don’t always wear capes.  Sometimes they quietly do their jobs for many years and are taken too soon.  Thank you Sgt. Perez!!  No doubt Heaven is a much safer place with you on patrol!
