Jodie and I are headed to Hayward this weekend for yet another weekend-long dance competition. I have no doubt that we will have a good time and Jodie will likely grab some more gold to bring back to The Big Top. It will be a good weekend. But I have to confess that I am not looking forward to the drive because the route we have to take is part of the planned funeral procession for the four murdered Oakland Police officers’ memorial service today. Officials are pretty much guaranteeing that all routes in the areas around Oakland will be affected by this and advising to allow for extra time. I hate traffic. Who doesn’t? But I think this is one time I will just suck it up if I find myself sitting in traffic…and I will definitely be praying for the families of these heroes who died serving.
God bless you Sgt Mark Dunakin, Officer John Hege, Sgt Daniel Sakai and Sgt Ervin Romans.
