Dear Police Officers

Dear Police Officers

Dear Police officers,

Thank you so much. Everyday you protect us all and put your lives on the line. As a country we truly need you and we thank you for your service. Lately we haven't thanked you because of the brutality that has taken place in this country. There are good and there are bad people. As a police officer you are held to a higher standard because you have sworn to protect us. Some police officers have abused their power, but there are still so many amazing police officers out there.

Police officers that would or have given their lives to protect civilians. Those that have families that fear if their love one will come home. Being a police officer is one of the most stressful jobs for those who serve and their family. Everyday they put on their uniform and put their lives on the line. They don't know if they will be home for dinner that night. They protect us all and we need that protection. As a country we have always needed the police's protection. Sadly, some people don't feel safe around them because of police brutality.

Police brutality is wrong and most police officers know that. You have a split second to decide what to do in a situation most people would never dream of being in. That split second is when you decide who you are as a cop. These days the media portrays police officers as being bad, but they don't look at the good they do as well. I want to thank you for putting that uniform on everyday. I want to thank you for helping protect our country. I also want to say that the brutality must end, but as citizens we can only express our feelings towards police brutality. We need you on the front lines trying to change how police officers are seen. You must help change your imagine. Take that second and choose who you are as a cop. When you see police brutality stop it, be aware of it and grow as a police officer. You are the ones that can stop it and make a change. There are always going to be people on your side. We don't always say it, but I want to say it again, Thank you. Thank you so much for your service.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate. Some religions like the Islam do not even celebrate Christmas and then you have others, the Buddhists, who use the holiday to practice their religion of spreading peace and goodwill. In no particular order, I would like to demonstrate a little culture about the ways Christmas is celebrated or is not celebrated throughout five different religions.
