A Blue Christmas

A Blue Christmas - A National Campaign to say Thank you to the men and woman who serve and protect us, and to show that those who have given their lives in the line of duty are not forgotten and neither are their families.



Message from Kevin Dunn (The Founder of "A Blue Christmas")

I have decided to try and launch a National Campaign for this coming Christmas season. I want to call it A Blue Christmas.
The idea is to say thank you to the men and woman who serve and protect our communities, and to honor the memories of those officers who have given their lives in the line of duty.
It can be as simple as changing a porch light to a blue bulb…..blue candles in the windows….a section of lights on your house that are blue. If you do a more elaborate display, your imagination is the limit.
I am still working out the details, but wanted to give you the background on this idea.

On March 18th Greenville Police Officer Allen Jacobs lost his life when he and other officers spotted the suspect walking along the street and wanted to ask him about a weapon. They were conducting a field interview based on some information they received. The suspect took off. And Officer Jacobs gave chase. As Officer Jacobs rounded a corner of a house he was met with a hail of gunfire. He was shot multiple times, was wearing a bulletproof vest, and his gun was still holstered. Officer Jacobs died later of his wounds in the Hospital. Before other Officers could chase down the suspect, he turned the gun on himself.
Officer Jacobs left behind a young wife, 2 sons and a daughter on the way. Officer Jacobs death has stunned the community. I don’t know why but this death has really bothered me, so I thought we need to come together as a community and a country to say thank you. We need to let officers know we appreciate what they do and for those who made the ultimate sacrifice, let their families know they aren’t forgotten. What better time than at Christmas.
Right now this is an idea I have, as it comes together more I will post more. But I wanted to get the idea out there and see what happens.
Thank you to every officer that has said I will serve and protect…. thank you to my Dad, who was an officer in the 60’s and then went on to train officers in NJ.
