A crowd of patriots gathered on Thursday night at a candlelight vigil for New Jersey State Trooper Sean Cullen, who was killed on Monday while responding to a highway car fire.
According to Fox News, the 31 year-old trooper was hit by a car at the scene of the accident on I-295 in West Deptford, and he died of his injuries hours later.
Though he only became a trooper two years ago, this had been Cullen’s lifelong dream. He was also a member of two N.J. township police departments, and officers from all over the southern part of the state came to the vigil to honor him.
Cullen’s sister Jenn Kelleher spoke at the vigil, saying her brother always thought he could fly and that he was an invincible superhero.
“It was impossible for him to gain those wings when he was here on earth,” she said. “We’re so happy that now he’s watching over us. He gained super hero strength.”
Born in Ireland, Cullen came to America with his family when he was 3 years-old Cinnaminson, N.J. He was engaged to be married, and he had a 9 year-old son.
In Obama’s America, police officer’s are rarely given the respect they deserve. SHARE this story if you want to honor this officer who died trying to protect Americans!
