I AWOKE THIS MORNING TO PUT ON BLUE & A BADGE OF HONOR UPON CHEST/ I must put a gun on my hip with a prayer in my heart & a willingness to serve the public from the bad guys in the streets/ you see with a media that leaves God out & a public who sometimes cower for their fear of wolves being led by the prince of darkness. My life is hated for giving out a ticket but thanked when breathing life into a human being/ I wear a target on my back not knowing whom to fear & so I turn to God for the Strength to bear. I try to put a happy face on then hear of a brother in blue or brown being slain for no reason but wearing a uniform of color to serve all colors. Oh how my heart bleeds within as Father, Mother, & my family of color give there life for the sake of another!
SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCH ANGEL DEFEND THE PEOPLE IN BLUE WHO FIGHT A BATTLE/ of Good over evil. Be there hope as they trust in you that what happens in battle is there surrender to GODS Holy Will & for the greater Glory of GOD/ who will cast the devil into hell. The people in Color live in the Hue!!! GODS PROMISE IN THE SKY OF BLUE!!!!!
