" Blake made us realize... When [Police Officers] get a call, they jump up and go because they are called to move, to be there, to do what has to be done. When no one else will. They answer the call and it is with out hesitation. Without hesitation, they answer the call and run into the unknown. That has made us realize that their job is a calling." -Blake Snyder's Parents
