Today is the visitation for my cousin, Officer Melvin Santiago. He will be honored with the U.S. Honor Flag–a flag that flew over the World Trade Center ruins on 9/11–and that is now used to honor fallen soldiers. He will also be posthumously honored by a promotion to detective and a Medal of Honor at a special ceremony tonight. So far, over 51,000 people on Facebook have pledged to leave their lights on this Friday to remember him–and the numbers grow by the minute. Thank you for all your love and support.
