About the Cause:
“Tell my family I love them.”
Those were the last words spoken by Toledo Police Officer Anthony Dia after being shot on 7/4/2020. He was only 26-years-old. And he was shot... just doing his job... Which, that night was responding to a call about an intoxicated man in a Home Depot parking lot... in which said intoxicated man whom he was trying to help shot him, and killed him. “Tell my family I love them.”
Can you imagine? Speaking those words knowing they’re your last. Knowing you will never get to hug and kiss your loved ones one last time. Knowing that you won’t get to tell your family you love them in person one last time.
Can you imagine? Being Officer Dia’s family, having to hear that relayed message. Listening to the recording from the radio of their loved one’s final words and not being able to say “I love you too”. Not even getting to say goodbye.
This is seriously a nightmare that I have more times than not. But thankfully, it’s a nightmare I get to wake up from, whereas others aren’t so lucky. This just breaks my heart. My heart just aches and continues to break for our LEOs and their families.
