Project Blue Light – A project to light up your porch with a blue light in honor of police and law enforcement who lost their lives while in the line of duty. So help show your support for those who have lost their lives while on the line of duty … Light up your porch or window in blue lights!
Project Blue Light
Jeff Coffee a police officer shared. “121 Law Enforcement Officers and 22 K-9s have been killed in the line of duty in 2017 so far in the United States. Project Blue Light gives all of us an opportunity to honor their sacrifice by displaying blue lights in their honor. May God Bless and comfort their families during this holiday season. #PROJECTBLUELIGHT”
According to Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.), Project Blue Light started in 1989 by Dolly Craig who had to blue candles during the holiday season. These were in honor of her son-in-law, Daniel Gleason, who had been killed in the line of duty while serving with the Philadelphia (PA) Police Department on June 5, 1986, and one for her daughter and Danny’s wife, Pam, who had been killed in an automobile accident in August 1989. They have since adopted this practice to honor those officers who have served and ptroected us.
This consept is similar to Green Light a Vet, but green light is for Veterans, while the blue light is for law Enforcement. Both the Green Light and the Blue light are for good causes to light up your porch with. Maybe do both? One for Veterans and the other for Law Enforcement!
LED Blue Light
Just like I did in Greenlight A Vet, I highly recommend a Blue LED bulb for Project Blue Light. As LED lights last longer and uses less energy. They may have a higher cost to buy, but saves in the long run.
The concept is to display the blue lights during the Holiday Season. But, maybe we should display a blue light all the time for those law enforcement officers who has lost their lives in the line of duty. The color blue is a symbol of peace. That is why they use blue for this project. Check out this blog post All Things Blue!
January is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day!
In September is Thank a Police Officer Day!
However, I think we should show appreciation and thank a police officer daily. Every time we see one. I actually personally thank every police officer I can that I come across. I will tell them thank you for your service. Sometimes, it will be for our county or community or state. Depends on which part they serve in.
