*My story: Years ago I was hit head on by a drunk driver and the officers
talked to me and kept me calm while they helped paramedics –firefighters
untangle my body from the wreckage and for the next month kept me updated
about the driver(3rd DUI, no insurance, and on the run). I am incredibly
grateful for the care shown by the officers, and want to show them that we
care too! I can’t even imagine if some unstable person was
shooting officers while they were helping me!! *

 Driving from Idaho to California recently, I was saddened by all the news
involving the harming of police officers. We could put blue light bulbs on
porches or anywhere else around our homes or business to show our support
for the men and women in blue that give their lives to protect us. My hope
is that officers driving by homes and businesses notice the blue lights
and that it will touch their hearts, and show them firsthand there is
support for them. I’ve started sending emails to the Media nationwide. I
am hoping everyone that has read my email will help get this message out
and that each community will help get the blue light bulb message out
however they can. Email-Facebook-Twitter and so on

 Mayor Widmyer of CDA, Idaho received my e-mail and has reached out to help
me share the blue light campaign, and also is working on his own project to
recognize our law enforcement officers: *Mayor Widmyer of Coeur d’ Alene,
Idaho, is heading fundraising efforts for construction of a law enforcement
memorial in McEuen Park. The memorial is a “Thin Blue Line” waterscape that
would also include three waterfalls “Respect,” “Honor,” and “Remember.”
Donations for the memorial river can be made at K27forever.com. Contact
 Mayor Steve Widmyer at **208.661.4069* <208.661.4069>*. *So together
we hope you will reach out and help us. I called Lowes they said they
would have plenty of blue light bulbs on hand and hopefully any place that
sells bulbs would have this color. I’m hoping soon we can flip a switch and
America will be shining blue! Look for Law Enforcement Blue Light
Movement face book page post your story’s and pictures.

 I’m going to keep emailing anybody that will listen I know this has been
done in different area's but I would like the whole nation to come together
and light up blue. *All it would take is one of you to put a blue bulb in,
maybe the rest would follow.* Please send pictures or story's to this email

This is the light at my house with my dog and a sign supporting the K-9
officers. I also hope the White House will follow us and light up with
blue lights.

 Thank you, Kelly Gunderson
