Reflections for Corporal Montrell Lyle Jackson

The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord;
he is their stronghold in time of trouble.
The Lord helps them and delivers them;
he delivers them from wicked and saves them,
because they take refuge in him.
Psalm 37:39-40
Rest in peace brother.

I pray for the families of all the officers who were sadly killed on Sunday, July 17, 2016. I'm so sad in my heart by the hatred and violence we see in our great country, and the lack of respect mankind display to each other as a whole. Corporal Montrell Jackson expressed his sadness days before his death regarding the path of violence and hatred we see on display in our great nation. May God bless Montrell Jackson for he loved his fellow brothers and sisters in life.

Rest in Peace, My Brother. Your courage, commitment, service and sacrifice shall not be forgotten.

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle;
be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray:
and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.

Corporal Jackson, thank you sir for your service. To be murdered by a coward and self proclaimed sovereign citizen is a tragedy of immense importance to everyone. These criminals walk among us, with their recorded manifestos a testament to their demented lifestyle. You were doing your job, and were ambushed by this killer. Thankfully we will be spared the anguish and cost of a lengthy court proceeding. We will keep your family and Department in our thoughts. Please watch over us as we carry on.

A police officer should be remembered not by how he died, but how he lived! A great man has gone to secure a safe path for the rest of us to follow. Thank you to you, your family and the Baton Rouge Police Department. Our country is much less safe without you. Rest in Peace Brother!

"My Brother"

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was idealistic and believed he could make a difference.
He was immensely proud of the uniform and the badge and what they represent.
He felt privileged to be of service to his department, his community and to his country.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was friendly, courteous, and polite, yet firm.
He laughed and joked, but was serious when necessary.
He was competent, trained, and professional.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He had a strong sense of right and wrong and became
frustrated when true justice became sidetracked.
He felt the sharp criticism that goes with the job, but he
never wavered.
He stood by and for his fellow officers.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He longed for his family during the long hours.
He worried about them during his shifts and the lonely
weekends, holidays and midnights when they were apart.
He felt guilty about the lost time, but knew his calling
and prayed they would understand.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was a good son, a loving husband, and a devoted father.
He was dedicated to the profession and cared about the
people he served.
He wanted to do the best job that he could and strived to
be the best he could be.
He was a good citizen and a good neighbor.

He was a cop.

Yes, I did know him.
He was a cop, he was my Brother.

Rest easy Brother Jackson, we have the watch...

”I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.”
---Isaiah 6:8

You answered the call and made the ultimate sacrifice. Rest easy in God's kingdom and watch over us as we continue the battle here on earth!!!

To the Family of Corporal Montrell Jackson

Times like this can be very difficult so pray constantly. Philippians 4:6-7 admonishes us to throw our anxiety on our Heavenly Father, he in turn will strengthen you and place peace upon your mind and heart.

Also keep in mind what we are told at Revelation 21:3-4. God promises us that he will do away with everything that causes tears of sorrow. Imagine death, pain and suffering being done away with. Only tears of joy when we welcome our loved ones back to a paradise earth. What a joy it will be to experience this promise soon.

Once again, my condolences to the family.
