Today I was asked to be Scott Rigsby’s assistant for his visit to Capr Girardeau. I picked him up at 06:00, had breakfast with him then took him to the Run for God 5K/10K. I helped him set up his table, took pictures for him and took him back to his motel. Later I picked him up ad drove him to St Louis to catch his flight. Scott is an amazing man and a great speaker. Praise God I was the one picked to drive him around today.

I saw this on a Police Officers blog.

What have you learned as a police officer that the public doesn’t know or understand?

1.) A life can change permanently — or end — in an instant, without warning or second chances.

2.) A suicide has more than one victim.

3.) Children should not have to see some things.

4.) The “safest” neighborhoods can be the deadliest.

5.) Most people don’t really know their neighbors.

6.) It is one thing to catch a person “red handed,” it is quite another to convict them.

7.) The police uniform is a symbol. It is not protection. The emotions of the people you serve go right through it.

8.) Many, many people will never see their own situation as their own fault, when they should. They therefore miss the opportunity to heal.

9.) Many Americans insist they know their rights. Some do, most do not.

10.) If a person repeats something three times, he is intoxicated. (“No wait, no wait, no wait …”)

11.) If we listened to each other we would avoid most of the problems we have with one another.

12.) Someone wants what you have, even if your only possession is a dryer box.

13.) There are some amazingly evil people in the world. They will hurt you just for fun, and they lack the ability to feel bad about it.
