In the news recently, more recent than they want, police officers have been getting a bad wrap. I would say well-deserved attention to those who think they are above the law. High on a testosterone juice? Who knows what goes through an officer’s mind when he is beating someone senseless, but that is for another topic on another day.
One officer proved that not all police are bad. There are many good officers who still serve and protect. I know plenty! They really are out there and deserve to be recognized. We hear more sickening stories about officers who take the law into their own hands. I’m tired of it, are you? I say keep telling your stories, and maybe, just maybe the news will take a turn for the more positive like this story about Athens-Clarke County Police Officer Gary “Lee” Crosby, who went out of his way to help a family that is down on their luck. He went on a call and found a family squatting at a resident.
Here is his story:

Humanness – being human
Is that enough of a definition?
In recent news, Kim Kardashian and her daughter North West were in a car accident when her sister slipped who was driving did some slipping and sliding. Everyone was reported to be ok.
The one thing I had a problem with on this report, had nothing to do with the report itself. My issue was the people who joked, and made insulting comments about this family, and they never said, “Oh wow, the baby is fine, that’s great that no one was hurt.” (I’m talking about those who posted comments in the negative but never did say anything positive.)
That is their opinion. I know, I get it, but I do not have to like your opinion, nor do you have to like mine.
Here’s mine. You don’t have to like someone to feel compassion for them in a particular situation. The moment someone goes to twitter or facebook and says something happened to their family, most of the time people are there to give support. You, yes you, prefer to decrease your self-worth and talk about someone else’s family.
Do you ever wonder if the world will ever have so much positive thinking and happiness in it that there will be no more war or strife?
What has the world come to where everyone is contemplating their travel plans to not include an airplane ride because they fear their airplane may disappear without a trace?
What’s happening in our world that people are being kidnaped and being used as bait for religious or political awareness?
Will the world ever be released from hypocrisy?
