Appreciation for Those Who "Protect and Serve"
- Written by Lon Lorton Lon Lorton
Friends of the Church,
I wrote the following letter this morning, thinking I would send it to the local newspaper. I’m not sure it will be published, as it goes beyond the 250-word limit of letters on the opinion page. It is offered here for you to know where my prayers have been directed today.
I awoke this morning to the news of the deaths of five police officers in Dallas, Texas. This, as a peaceful protest was culminating over the deaths of citizens in Baton Rouge and St. Paul. The divisiveness and violence we see in our country and the world are not anecdotal nor isolated. It takes time and it takes the focused energy of those who wish upheaval and destruction to cause the turmoil we see. Our culture is not one of inclusiveness and caring for one another. It is marred by those who desire at some level the panic and chaos that exists. And the degrading of humanity will continue as good folks say or do nothing in response.
