At some point in all our lives, we have felt that feeling for one reason or another. When the ground we stand on shakes beneath your feet. Close your eyes and imagine for a moment, that middle of the night phone call….turning around and your 2 year old is not by your side….you hear through the phone tree that a gun was brought to your child’s school….your parent that suffers from Alzheimer’s and is unaccounted for….
You begin to shake from a place you didn’t know existed and your mind races like a car on the autobahn. There is also another ground shake that vibrates and resonates up your feet and legs and lands smack dab in your heart. It is the sound of 500 plus motorcycles and people coming together to support a “cause”.
We thank each and every one of you out there that has come out the last several years to support our “cause” and ask that you join us in supporting another cause that many are not aware that exist. We would like to introduce you to Nadja and Office Terry a team that is out there when most of us are in panic mode.
Nadja is a specially trained K-9 Unit that works in our area and is called out through-out Illinois to help locate missing children, Alzheimer’s patients and is trained to track gun-powder resin. Nadja is available to us through 100% donations, her training and housing is supplied out of the passion that Terry has for what he calls “The Spirit Of The Law” – I met Terry when Leathers 4U helped design and provide Nadja with her Kevlar Vest that protects her when she is called out to do her job.
Tim and I got to sit down with Terry yesterday and understand more about what it is she does and what it is that Terry is all about. I can only say, what an AMAZING TEAM!
“The Spirit Of The Law” is what drives Terry on a daily basis, I can not even come close to writing how this team makes a difference that so many are unaware of. I can only ask that you come out and hear and see it for yourselves on June 10th.
Terry explained to Tim and I yesterday about a recent child that had gone missing, as he spoke, he spoke as if this child was his own, he went into a seek and find mode that is best left served hearing from him. As he began explaining the process, his eyes became intense, and his entire demeanor changed, in my mind’s eye, I pictured myself in a “mother’s panic mode” one that I can not even fathom, to have someone like Terry with a partner like Nadja that has capabilities that assist us in our darkest hours.
Come out and support those that are helping support us. June 10th – Bikers For Barkers Run to keep Nadja sniffing us to safety!
