Now more than ever we need a sense of the restoration of confidence, not just in our police but in ourselves as a people. Things may look rather dark right now, and anyone who says otherwise can be likened to the proverbial ostrich burying their head in the sand. It is a time for more than just hoping on a prayer, but standing up and being counted by doing something for the land we profess to love. After all, as the Christian nation that we say we are, we should know by now, as the good book says, that we are indeed our brother’s keeper. The two students pictured here show this to be true even in the simplest of ways. (Photo: Bill Mortley).
