NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A new mural honors the Metro officers who stayed at the bombing site on 2nd Avenue to make sure people evacuated the area.

Instead of the city's classic "I Believe in Nashville," this mural says "I Believe in Herores," paying tribute to the six officers who risked their lives on Christmas morning.

There's a new addition to I Believe in Nashville - one that pays tribute to the metro police officers who worked to evacuate people before the bomb went off in Downtown Nashville Christmas morning.

The image initially gained traction online but was quickly placed downtown at the Hard Rock Cafe. The restaurant agreed to place it in one of their windows that was blown out in the bombing.

"What's really cool is The Hard Rock has agreed that after this is fixed, they're gonna frame this mural and hang it up in The Hard Rock forever," said Tim Gerst.

Also, through Sunday, 100% of the profits from the "I Believe in Nashville" stores online, in The Mall at Green Hills and Opry Mills Mall will be donated to the funds set up that gives back to victims.
