Encouraging One Another in Rough Times

Posted by Ms. K - July 12, 2016

As we all sit and watch the news over the last week, with today having fallen officers memorials and such. We are questioning ourselves as to who is right and wrong in all the killings no matter the ethnicity, do you really love or can learn to love another that doesn’t look like you, talk, shop, raise their children (child), food selections, sit next too? Without feeling some type of way (barring you have not been wronged) needless to say no matter what someone or group has said about you or your culture how do that effect your life? Why allow one person to determine what your day is going to be like because they said something you did not agree with? As, I am currently going through racial tension at my current job I understand the frustration with law enforcement as that is my career of choice, but I also understand being a minority in law enforcement you are banned from the beginning if law enforcement agencies cannot respect minorities on the force,corrections,court why expect them to respect them on the street? I live and breathe law enforcement and will until the day I die, we have to have a common ground one day.

I would like to take this time to reflect on the tragedies, though it is very difficult for me to watch the news today I took today off from television and I know some may say they do that every day, or they do not have one in their home. That is great, but for me my entertainment is television, yesterday was so overwhelming that I laid down and woke up it had been 5 hours, for me it is personal as my background is law enforcement as previous stated.

What I would like to say is Encourage One Another, everyone deserves to be loved, liked and appreciated. Being disrespected in any form is not a good feeling as long as we continue to hold grudges and not be true to what society is screaming, what was America built on? I understand both sides of the coin and can see wrong on both sides but where has that gotten me? What has changed since last Tuesday? For those that do not know, North Carolina among 5 other states have voted to not allow police dash cams and or body cams to be released to the public, now where do we go from here when we are suppose to be transparent?

Heavy Heart for everyone!!!!
