Our Men and Women in Blue

It is rare these days to turn on the TV or open our computers and not see deplorable violence against law enforcement. It seems to be a cancer that is spreading at a rapid pace throughout our nation. Always a dangerous career, but the threat level has certainly increased in recent events. The courage it must take those who wear the badge and knowingly go every day into the depths of perilous situations in order to bring peace to the masses must be daunting. But day after day, those officers proudly accept their duty to do so. The majority of citizens respect them and continuous acts of kindness have been displayed on their behalf.

As a community and a nation we have always overcome negative with positive. Our history has proven that time and again. We have survived a civil war, the civil rights movement and 9/11, to name a few. We are a fiercely strong country and good will prevail.

Police officers are a different breed. They do not risk their lives with each shift because of financial gain or notoriety. It is a profound sense of wanting to protect and make this world a better place that causes
them to put on the uniform and willingly go toward danger instead of run away from it.

God bless them for it.
