5 to 10 years old . . . innocent children . . . and the loving adults who were the guardians and teachers . . . killed.
“To Protect and Serve” is the dream of our police. A lot of good hearts join various police forces to make a difference. They try hard at their jobs and purpose. But, they often become disenchanted, finding themselves “cleaning up after crime” instead of stopping it in its tracks. We see that once again today in this horrific assault on humanity.
Clearly, we are at a place where we must understand that anyone, anytime can do this to us, to our families, friends and folks throughout our cities. And yet, I firmly believe, even in this moment of devastation, we must absolutely rethink how our country can protect itself from itself – and, do it now. It isn’t about gun control; it’s about stopping killers in their tracks!
The finality is apparent. And people, citizens and non, must pull together with defense friendly legislation and purpose to take up the responsibility of personal and communal protection. We have the heart and courage.
Collectively, we can do it! Divided, we cannot.
Lower the flag . . . but raise our spirits!
blessings to all …………….
