Protect and Serve

image

I am grateful for those who put their lives in harms way everyday to protect me, to protect all.

My heart breaks over the hate and violence going on in America.

Vengeance is not the answer to injustice.  

Everyday our military, firefighters and police officers willingly lay down their lives. I believe the majority choose their careers out of a sincere desire to protect and serve.  Like any profession, there are the few who abuse their power.

Every police shooting is investigated. Those who abuse their power must be held accountable, by due process of law. They too are entitled to be tried by a jury of their peers. Revenge is not justice. Social justice can only be obtained within the confines of the law. Violence solves nothing.

Thank you to all who protect and serve.

In John 15:13 (NKJV) Jesus said, “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.”
