Last week we received the news that 2 Gilchrist Sheriff Deputies were killed The news was very unsettling to everyone. I did not know the deputies but I have several co workers who did. Their funerals were yesterday. Later in the night, we heard 2 Dallas officers were shot. Please keep law enforcement in your prayers.

When I was 8 years old, I was pulled over by law enforcement for the first time.
It was a Gilchrist County Sheriff Officer....
I remember being scared to death I was going to jail, and he was scared to death for the rest of the world with an 8 year old driving!!! Lol
I grew up on the back roads, that officer followed me home that day and told my dad a few “kind” words about me driving!! Lol my dads reply “how else will she learn to drive?” This community has provided me with so many life lessons...my first heartbreak, my first rodeo, my first tragedy, my first love, my first job, it’s where I learned who Jesus is, it’s where I learned to swim, it’s where I learned “hard work builds character” it’s where I’ve been loved by so many, and prayed for by even more...
I didn’t personally know these two officers, but I personally know this community, and even though I’m not as involved as I once was, it’s still the community who raised me (along with all your wonderful Dixie and hatch folks)
It’s been a week of heartache, but I have seen so much resilience in this tiny town...I’m thankful to every single person who serves this community and surrounding areas! To all of you in law enforcement, first responders, etc thank you so much, even through heart break of losing two brothers you still stand and serve.
I pray this video will touch someone and show everyone else what a small town heart beat looks like.
Please feel free to share.

Just purchased this bracelet in memory of Police Officer Rogelio Santander. He unfortunately succumbed to his injuries while arresting a shoplifting suspect and was fatally shot. 100% of the profits will be donated to the Assist the Officer Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, as requested by the Dallas Police Department. Thank you for your service. RIP. 🙏 #backtheblue
My thoughts and prayers are with my brothers in blue at Somerset County Sheriff's Office tonight. Corporal Eugene Cole was shot and killed early this morning. His killer remains at large. #EnoughisEnough#BackTheBlue
