I forgot to add this in the little bit about me post…
A very very long time ago…seems like I was 23? 22 maybe. I was pulled over at gunpoint by a LOT of police cars. I was asked to leave my vehicle. Spin around lift my shirt. Lay face down on the ground. Blah blah blah. I did all of this.
Apparently, my vehicle matched the vehicle of an armed robbery suspect.
I did all I was asked to do.
Afterwards, learned that it was the wrong vehicle but it really did match the vehicle they were looking for. I chatted with the officers for a bit. They apologized profusely and thanked me for being so cooperative.
End of story.
I did what was asked of me. They were looking for a man who had just robbed a bank at gunpoint.
My next door neighbor was a police officer. The stories…the amount of lives saved. Victims helped. Justice served.
I am appalled at the amount off officers that are being slaughtered. Yes slaughtered. My neighbor’s son was slaughtered for just being a police officer. This flag is flown by my neighbor in honor of him.
I honor the good men and women out there who risk their lives, leave their families, and don’t get to put their kids to bed, miss all the holidays, and risk getting shot just sitting in a restaurant…every day.
Yeah, and I’m an ordained minister.
I studied for years to become a chaplain learning about all the different faiths and religions.
It was my honor to be the last person an individual saw on this earth before they passed away. For 8 years I sat by bedsides, held hands, listened to their last thoughts of love and loss.
I am proud to be not only a law enforcement supporter but also a minister. This is not a religious or a political post. Yep their are bad guys in all places of work. One bad seed in law enforcement was in my own family. In religion, yes, also many rapist and pedophiles. I see the good where their is good and I support those that are good and have integrity. Their will be bad seeds but they do not always grow into the trees that provide shade when we are in need. Most of those bad seeds get weeded.
And those are my thoughts for the day. I don’t affiliate with a “group” or a “party” I affiliate with those that are good and I respect and honor them as I would want them to do the same for me.
