Before the Tigers-Marlins game yesterday I had the privilege of meeting Stacy Booth, an Auburndale, Fla., police officer who was shot multiple times in September 2011 while responding to a domestic violence call. After several surgeries and physical therapy she appears to be on the road to recovery. We all have troubles, but what she endured helps put things in perspective. My sincere thanks to her and all the law enforcement officials who put their lives on the line every day for our communities.
