May 13 is the Annual Candlelight Vigil for Fallen Police Officers in Washington D.C.
Last May, Chicago Police Officer and Army National Guard Lieutenant Thomas E. Wortham IV, 30, was gunned down outside his parents’ home just after returning from a trip to Washington to honor other fallen officers. This year, it is his turn to be honored at the memorial along with the 157 other officers who died in the line of duty in 2010.
There are no words to describe Sandra Wortham’s extraordinary eulogy for her brother. Just listen.
