Today is Corporal Chris Glenn's Alive Day. He was shot in the line of duty on December 20, 2006.
At Nampa PD they celebrate Alive Day: the anniversary of the day an officer survived being shot in the line of duty. On Wednesday NPD celebrated Officer Parsons' Alive Day and it warms my heart to see a video recording of coworkers, friends, and family expressing their love and appreciation.
I was lucky enough to see Chris at the trooper graduation ceremony on Friday. I always check in with him on the anniversary of the shooting and was really happy I could talk with him in person this year. We both cannot believe that nine years have passed. It feels like a long time ago and yet it also feels like yesterday.
Today, I want to express my appreciation for Corporal Glenn. I am so glad you are still here with us. Happy Alive Day!
