One hour of life, crowded to the full with glorious action, and filled with noble risks, is worth whole years of those mean observances of paltry decorum, in which men steal through existence, like sluggish waters through a marsh, without either honor or observation.
Breathes there the man with soul so dead, Who never to himself hath said, This is my own, my native land!
Breathes there the man, with soul so dead,Who never to himself hath said,This is my own, my native land!Whose heart hath neer within him burnd,As home his footsteps he hath turnd,From wandering on a foreign strand!
If you have no friends to share or rejoice in your success in life - if you cannot look back to those whom you owe gratitude, or forward to those to whom you ought to afford protection, still it is no less incumbent on you to move steadily in the path of duty; for your active excretions are due not only to society; but in humble gratitude to the Being who made you a member of it, with powers to save yourself and others.
There never will exist anything permanently noble and excellent in the character which is a stranger to resolute self-denial.
Quotes from the news wire:
But the real question is how do we change the culture of policing? I think we do that by making the employer responsible for the actions of the employee. We do that with doctors. We do that with lawyers. We do that at all most all of our industries, and if we do that in law enforcement, the employer will change the culture. So as opposed to having one officer change or not change, we'll have all officers transforming because the departments are taking on more of that burden.
The question we should be debating and fighting over is how do we resolve those issues going forward? One side says I'm going to take from some to give to others. Fighting bigotry with bigotry is hypocrisy. if we remember, the goal isn't for Republicans or Democrats to win, but for communities to feel safer and our officers to feel respected.
