I cried as I read Sunday’s editorial (TNT, 11-20) regarding law enforcement. Thank you for publicly expressing that view. It means the world to me. If the saying is true about one letter writer really representing 100, 1,000 or sometimes 10,000 others, then this letter is coming from more than just myself.
Being married to a trooper for 27 years, I can tell you that the perception of law enforcement has changed so drastically over the years. Society, too, has changed and not all for the good.
Do I believe one editorial will change everything? No, I do not, but maybe it will redirect one mind to see another other view. Maybe it will soften one heart to feel for “the man.” I know it speaks volumes to those in law enforcement, their families and friends.
This week, I’ll give thanks for one more thing.
