I have been pretty sick over the past three days, still am, and I have been stuck in the house. I wanted to get out, but if I was going to, I wanted to do something right. So I got my American Flag and stood outside my local Sheriff’s office in support of the officers that put their lives on the line every day. And every officer in the office came out to thank me, along with every officer that was driving by. I could see the gratitude in their eyes and all I could think of was that I am the one that is grateful to them for everything they do! And I realized how much it meant to them to know that we are behind them! I even had many of the citizens honking their horns in support, Black and White! And I had a good Christian Black lady pull up and thank me for showing support. I never expected any of that, all I wanted to do was show the Officers that the citizens are behind them! But, after seeing how it affected the Officers and how there were so many normal citizens in support for what I did, I knew that standing for the Officers is something we all need to do! So I am asking for Officer Support Fridays, where anyone can stand outside their Police Offices with Flags and signs that show support for the officers! All you have to do is go down for an hour or more and show them that you are behind them and are very grateful for the risks they put their lives in to protect us all! And show up for as many Fridays as you can!
Never forget that, when you feel your life in danger of any kind, the Officers will show up and do anything they can to protect and save you! All I am asking for is an hour a week, whatever time you can get there, to let them know how much they mean to you! Please help me show them that the people who show so much hate for them is just a very small minority and that the rest of us will stand for them with pride! I will greatly appreciate anything you can do, even if it’s just baking a cake and taking it to them! Let’s stand as proud Americans and let them know that we are behind them and care about what happens to them! Imagine how you would feel if you were one of the Officers and you saw that kind of support being given to you! And you can put that sense of care in their hearts!
WAKE UP AMERICANS, OR LOSE AMERICA!
