“People wish to be settled: only as far as they are unsettled is there any hope for them.”Ralph Waldo Emerson
It’s a dream he had as a kid, and he never ceased to dream about it. He’s never told anyone since he’s 12, because he thinks his friends will find him stupid. But Paul thinks policemen are heros. He want to protect people in a uniform, too.
Paul thinks that if he was a policeman, he would have to dye his hair dark, because he’s afraid people won’t take him seriously with a rad mustache.
On Sundays, Paul reads poetry about policemen.
Goodbye boys in blueWhat is that wonderful soundIt’s coming from the cemetery groundSounds like bagpipes from a military tattooA large number of people gathered wearing blueIt’s a police funeral conducted in a military fashionMarching in line with pride and passionThey are saying goodbye to their fallen comradeAll performed with the precision of a military paradeAn observer cannot feel anything but proudTo have touched the life of the person in the funeral shroudTo give your life in such a wayHeroic to the end, the supreme price to payThe dedication of the boys in blueTo sacrifice their lives for youThey are eternally in your debtThe sacrifice, you do not regretGlynn Withey

Catherine thinks this is in her DNA, that they would give her a position after one day of training. Of course, they wouldn’t. She’s not tall enought to work in a plane and she doesn’t know.

What you don’t know is Catherine is so good at math she would be a great student pilot.
