America’s law enforcement officers are an incredible group of people. They know that any day on the job could be their last, yet the still come to work each day knowing that their communities depend on them.

Their families, however, demonstrate a different kind of courage.

The courage of a spouse who keeps it in the back of their mind that the next phone call they get might be “the call”, or the courage of a child who might not fully understand all the danger and evil in this world, but they understand their parent’s job is to fight it.

This incredible courage was put on display for the whole world when the children of a North Carolina sheriff left a simple note on their dad’s patrol car before his shift one day.

“This sweet note was left on the patrol car of one of our deputies by his children,” the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Department said in a Facebook post sharing the sweet note. “The loving support of our families and community sustains us each and every day!”

The next time you interact with a member of law enforcement, remember that that man or woman more likely than not has a family who prays to have them come home safely each day. More likely than not, they have children whose only hope is that their mom or dad will be safe that day.

Keep your local law enforcement, and their families, in your prayers. God’s protection and the support from their families and the communities they protect may be the only things that carry them through each day.

Craft Beer Customers Leave Unopened Can of Pale Ale on Bar for Fallen Soldiers

The gesture did not go unnoticed.

There really isn’t anything more American than craft beer. Before the experiment called “prohibition”, America was home to well over 2,500 breweries, with a vast majority of these businesses being family-operated and neighborhood-focused.  The banning of alcohol in the early 20th century brought this number down to around a half dozen or so companies, nearly all of whom converted their factories to produce medicine or dairy products in order to survive. Now, thanks to the resurgence of craft beer, Americans have their choice of nearly 4,000 smaller breweries to buy their swill from. And this doesn’t include brands like Coors, Miller, or Budweiser, who have all been gobbled up by giant, foreign conglomerates, making them no longer American-owned companies. In Atlanta, Georgia, the undisputed king of craft beer is Sweetwater – a brand usually focused on recreation and leisure. As visitors experience the brewery’s newly renovated taproom over Memorial Day Weekend, something special and spontaneous happened. To that, we simply say “cheers”.

America has not forgotten those who sacrificed it all for our freedom.

Amid the barbecues and Budweisers, it can be difficult to temper our Memorial Day celebrations with the true reason for the remembrance. Those of us with a three day weekend are likely gassing up the boat, gathering our grill supplies, and lathering on the sunscreen in anticipation of Memorial Day – a holiday that is far too often relegated to the realm of “hey it’s summer”-style shenanigans. We mustn’t ever forget why we have the day off, however. Memorial Day is truly a day of solemn reflection on those we’ve lost in the line of American military duty – a fact that is all too often overshadowed by these celebrations. But not for the fine people of Ohio, who showed the world what compassion is all about this weekend. A public call for mourners to attend the Ohio funeral of an unaccompanied 90-year-old Korean War veteran Saturday resulted in an overwhelming response. “It being Memorial Day weekend it was the right thing to do to come up and honor his life,” Suzanne Koehne told Fox 19. She attended the funeral in Cincinnati after driving nearly 100 miles to get there from Louisville, Kentucky. The turnout was incredible. An estimated 400 strangers, like Koehne, showed up to pay final respects to Army veteran Hezekiah Perkins whose only family, a daughter, couldn’t make it because of poor health, Fox 19 and other media reported. The gesture is just another reminder of the inherent greatness of the American public, and their reverence for those who sacrificed it all for our freedoms.
