Wounded Survivors Sculpture
- As Chicago police Officer Cedric Brumley lay in a hospital in 2002, recovering from massive injuries suffered in a car crash as he answered a call, he dreamed of picking his children up from school.
When he woke from a coma, his two children were the first ones he asked to see.
So when the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation commissioned a work to honor officers who have been severely injured in the line of duty, Brumley and other officers asked that the artists include family members to recognize the sacrifices they have made.
Those sacrifices that thankfully didn't end in an officers' death, but nevertheless denied us the continued service and company of a brother or sister officer will be recognized and remembered along with our deceased brethren.
