New York (CNN) — The killing this weekend of two New York City police officers as they sat in their patrol car left many people devastated. Buta message from the teenage son of one of the officers is a heartbreak in itself.
“Today is the worst day of my life,” 13-year-old Jaden Ramos posted on Facebook about the slaying of his father, Rafael Ramos.
“Today I had to say bye to my father,” the teenager wrote. “He was (there) for me everyday of my life, he was the best father I could ask for. It’s horrible that someone gets shot dead just for being a police officer. Everyone says they hate cops but they are the people that they call for help. I will always love you and I will never forget you. RIP Dad.
