Six-year old Noah Michael Davis of Shawnee, Kan., wanted to be a policeman so he could make sure “everyone was safe.” He didn't make it. Instead, he drowned in the family swimming pool and was declared brain dead. Although he couldn't help everyone, his family did donate his kidneys that gave two very sick people back their lives. On what would have been his seventh birthday, he was sworn in as an honorary police officer. Noah's story will have a special place in this year's Rose Parade Jan. 1, which will be seen by nearly a million spectators and 20 million television viewers around the world.

We cannot take a life for a life, for taking away a life will not ease the pain of a death and will not remove evil from the world.
