Every member of society should see this fallen police tribute that includes the song Officer Down by Hannah Ellis. Be aware that there are a couple of graphic scenes.
It begins with memorial processions ad then delves into the real world of danger that our law enforcement officers face on a daily basis.
Just watch the video!
Officer 457 was Officer Daniel Ellis, the cousin of the singer-songwriter Hannah Ellis. It is no wonder officers often have to draw their weapon. This video does a great job of showing why. Officer Down, the song, does a great job of explaining why.
WKYT Wash DC reported on Hannah singing the song for her cousin wen his name was added to the National Law Enforcement Officer’s memorial in Washington, D.C last May.
This weekend, the name of a fallen Richmond Police Officer will be added to the National Law Enforcement Officer’s memorial in Washington, D.C.
Officer Daniel Ellis was killed in the line of duty last November.
During this weekend’s ceremonies, his cousin and singer-songwriter Hannah Ellis will perform a song that she and two of her friends wrote, in his memory.
The song is titled “Officer Down.”
“People take from it their perspective and people take from it their part of the story,” Hannah Ellis said.
Ellis will sing the song she wrote from the nation’s capital this Sunday, shortly after President Obama honors our nation’s fallen heroes.
“It’s really amazing to see people that don’t know Daniel or Katie or anybody in the Ellis family be moved by this song,” Hannah Ellis said, “It brings back those memories really vividly.”
The song, written from Daniel Ellis’ wife Katie’s perspective, will not be released on iTunes until Thursday night at midnight.
Never Forget! While we are all running from danger, our law enforcement, firefighters, first respondents and troops are running towards it!
