    The best 5 months of my life has come to an end but it's only the beginning of my next 30 years. Last night I graduated from Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET) with 14 of now some of my best and closest friends (we started with 27). Throughout the entirety of the academy, we stressed, laughed a lot, took many, many tests, rolled in pools of sweat, did thousands and thousands of push ups, spit blood, got concussions and drove over 100mph...just to name a few.

    Lastly, I am also excited to say that Cary Police Department has hired me and I start Monday. Please pray for us all.

    Phil, respond the way you were trained. Do not let any of the current mess influence you and make you slow to react. Stay safe brother.
