GOD BLESS THOSE WHO MOURN…

I begin, with a sincere, heartfelt condolence to the families, loved ones, and friends of the fallen Dallas policemen, who sacrificed their lives that the community of Dallas would be safe.  I will spend time in prayer for you the families and loved ones who are morning your personal loss.

I pray not for their behalf, but for yours, your comfort, and peace to come over you as you grieve with a broken heart.  You are the personal side of the character of our law enforcement officers, and as such, deserving of our prayers, I am part of the mass who are effected by the tragic loss of such selfless public servants.

Recognizing the vast differences in the essence of our loss, makes it my Christian obligation, and my civic duty, to join you in the mourning and prayers during this time, fitting to remember our servant heroes, and to honor them in memorial.  I thank them for their service, and know that the community of Dallas will be far, far, less safe in the days to come, because their commitment to protect will not be in place.  The nation and the world will be less safe as this simply emboldens the enemies of our communities and our wellbeing to continue to bully, intimidate, and terrorize the innocent into submission.

I would never presume to say I understand how you feel because no one can, as each relationship is unique to the individuals, however, I, at best, can in all humility extend the love of Christ our Lord, with whom these fallen heroes are with, and likewise our own personal losses are under His love to us.  It is proper to mourn, and we all must respect that and join you in our own capacity and respect.

May God keep you in this time of loss, and bless you with those who will comfort you.
