An exchange of hugs as Kristen Glasser met with sergeants from the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Office in California. 

The men were on a 48-hour trek across the country, called the "Cannon Ball Run For Awareness," stopping in cities where officers had been killed.

They're taking each city's badges to Washington calling attention to the tragic deaths and the loved ones they leave behind. 

After officer David Glasser was shot and killed in May, his wife Kristen was left to care for their two children, a 6-year-old son and a 4-year-old daughter. 

She said the support of the group helps her get through every day, which is difficult for her and her children to cope with seven months after the officer's passing. 

"Just taking it day by day you know, trying to stay faithful and trust in God and our path in all of this," she said. "We are doing okay."

The group is on their way to Texas to meet with more loved ones of men and women in blue who were taken too soon.
