Cop protects and serves even in death

Skyline of Indianpolis. This photo was also ta...Police officers risk their lives to protect their communities every day. Their mission is "To Protect and Serve." When Indianapolis Police Officer David Moore was killed in the line of duty recently, he went above and beyond the call of duty. recently reported in Officer Moore's Organs Give Hoosier Patients New Life that he saved several lives just hours after three gun shot wounds took his life.

The director of the Indiana Organ Procurement Organization said that Officer Moore saved between 8 and 10 lives in Indiana and another state through his heroic donation. The Moore family said that they were comforted by news of Officer Moore's donation. He was a giving person not only in life but also in death. Officer Moore's mother, Sgt. Joanne Moore said, "I can get through today with my son passing because there are other families who are getting a beautiful phone call, and I hope that he saves them." As tragic as Officer Moore's death was, something good came out of it thanks to the miracle of organ transplantation.

We all have an appointment with death at some point in the future, and we all can make a difference, save lives, and help others when that appointment arrives. I encourage you, if you have not already, to sign up to be an organ and tissue donor by visiting the Donate Life America website today by clicking here. Do it today. Be a hero like Officer Moore.
