Reflections for Police Officer Robert Shawn Pitts

WE AS PEOPLE..HUMANS..IMMORTALS..SOME PARENTS AND SIBLINGS..SOME CHRISTIANS..SHOULD PRAY FOR THEIR KIDS..FAMILIES AND FELLOW BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN LAW ENFORCEMENT. WE NEED TO REALLY THINK THE ISSUES OF OUR 2nd AMENDMENT RIGHTS..WITH MUCH INNER THOUGHT. THE POSSIBLE SITUATION OF A LEGAL PERMIT CARRYING CIVILIAN BEING THERE WITH LEGAL FIREARM AND LEVEL HEAD TO BE ABLE TO REACT TO SITUATION. PRAY FOR UNITY..NOT MUTINY. GOD BE WITH OUR BLUE ON BLACK BRAVE PUBLIC UNDER PAID SERVING DAILY. IF WE COULD ALL BE MORE UNDERSTANDING AND CONCERNED WITH ALL OTHERS FEELINGS..NEEDS..AND BELIEFS. " LET IT BE "! SIMPLE RESPECT GOES A LONG WAY IN DAILY LIFE. NOT TO FOLD AND ROLL AWAY FROM OUR OWN LAURELS AND MORALS THAT MAKE US WHO WE ARE..BUT JUST A LITTLE FLEXIBILITY CAN SURE CHANGE THE ATMOSPHERE OF MANY AREAS WE FIND OURSELVES FACING EACH DAY. ESPECIALLY OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT. THINK ABOUT IT. I'M NOT PERFECT..BY GRACE OF LOVING GOD..FORGIVEN.

My words for the family are unexplainable. I’m so sorry. My mom has told me a lot about him. He was a brave soul.

Every morning I go to my knees. During that time I pray Psalm 91 over all LEO’s and this prayer also:

“Lord, Be with all law enforcement officers. Keep them safe and free from harm. They are Your soldiers on the front line of the battle against evil. If one should fall this day - wrap their family in your loving arms. Surround them with Your angels, loving family, friends, neighbors and caring people to comfort them. Ease their pain. Help them to mourn well. In Jesus' name and for Your Glory, Amen.”

I know that God sends those angels to watch over our officers, sometimes to protect them and sometimes to whisk our officers into His presence.

Feel His presence as God answers the prayers of many who have fallen to their knees on your behalf. Since the day of my son's death, I have carried every law enforcement officer and their family in my heart.

I have lifted your family to God every morning for over six years. I pray that Robert's life and death will bring glory to His name.

Trust those prayers. God is with you; He knows and will ease your pain.

Our faith helps us to see beyond the grave.

Avenue of the Fallen

Standing at attention in their class “A“uniforms, badges gleaming and shoes like glass, are your brothers and sisters of Law Enforcement. All of whom have previously paid the ultimate price.
Today, like many others, they welcome you to this wonderful place.
As you march down the Avenue of the Fallen, all eyes focus on you as if to say “it’s OK, you’re with your eternal partners.”
A salute is followed and a tear can be seen on so many faces.
Welcome, you served well.
Now come join us in the ranks, another is coming home.

"The Final Inspection"
The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"
The policeman squared his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.
But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."

Some heroes wear capes. My heroes wear dog tags and kevlar. Some heroes wear symbols on their chests. My heroes wear badges on theirs. Rest in Peace, brother. You won't be forgotten. One day I will take your place and fill your boots. You are an inspiration to us all. God bless. John 5:13 "Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends."

May God watch over the family and fellow officers these heroes worked with. We can only imagine their pain. But we can sympathize with them and we must support them. This is what the Patriots and Heroes looks like folks. Running to the danger when all others run away from it. Selfless and fearless to the end. They now work heavens Beat. And are in God's hands forever. Ever watching down on us all.
