God Made a Police Officer

May 24, 2013 -- 8:59am

Aired on: 23-May-13
On the 8th day, God looked down on his creation and decided he needed a protector...

He needed someone to work at all hours of the day and night to protect those who don’t want him around.

Someone to run six blocks through alleys and over fences to capture a thief for a victim that’s ungrateful because he didn’t do it fast enough. So God made a police officer...

HE needed someone to get punched, kicked, bit, spit on, run over, ridiculed, and verbally abused just for doing his job.

So god made a police officer...

God needed someone for people to blame all their problems on. Someone who could fight a criminal twice his size just to be accused of brutality by the public, media, and the administration for being to rough on him.

So god made a police officer....

God needed someone to stare death in the face and tell him to put the weapon down. Someone who can protect his own life or the lives of others by using force and violence then turn around and be a shoulder to cry on for a grieving victim. So god made a police officer...

God needed someone tough and hard on the outside, and calm and compassionate on the inside. Someone who could not only be just but also be fair. Someone who could think on his feet, and make life or death decisions in the blink of an eye.

So god made a police officer...

God needed someone who would not show weakness even though he was crying on the inside. He needed someone who could work on the streets five days a week, just to turn around and pick up an extra job or shift to support his family.

So God made a police officer....

God needed someone to be a counselor, a guide, a mechanic, a parent, a teacher, a lawyer, and a mind reader. Someone who could search through all the evidence and lies to figure out what really happened.

So god made a police officer....

God needed someone to be liked by few, loved by less, and hated by most. Someone able to solve everyone’s problems then go home to take care of his own.

So God made a police officer....

God needed someone to run towards the sound of gunshots, screams and chaos. Someone who could see death and evil on a daily basis then go home and hold his wife and kids as if nothing happened. God needed someone to be a hero, a knight in shining armor to a complete stranger...

So God made a police officer...dedicated to all who serve....
