Our defenders

Listening to the news today revealed that a Policer Officer was killed in Tampa Florida by a wrong way driver, but that is not the end of the story. As the driver traveled on the wrong side of the road, a woman who realized what was happening, tried to get his attention by blinking her lights at him to warn him that he was on the wrong side of the road. He continued coming in her direction, and she attempted to maneuver her vehicle to avoid him crashing head on into her, but found that she was not going to avoid getting hit by him. Suddenly a police car with blinking lights sped past her and got in front of her vehicle to take the hit from the driver who was on the wrong side of the road. The police officer took the hit and later died at the hospital. Just another day in the heroic lives of the people who sacrifice themselves every day to protect people they do not even know. It is another sober reminder that we can go about our lives blissfully unaware of the dangers that are averted every day because of those who are willing to face danger on our behalf. Say a prayer for the people who serve us in such an unselfish way.
