Reflections for Sergeant WyTasha Lamar Carter

So very sorry for Sgt. Carters family. Such a terrible senseless tragedy . I think being a police officer is one of the toughest jobs there is. So sorry we have lost such a great human being. I thank all police men every where for their service.

My condolences to the family and friends of Sergeant Wytasha Carter. Losing a loved one is always difficult. Please try to take comfort in Jesus words found at John 5:28,29 where he said that there would be a resurrection. Just think of the time, when you will see your loved ones again, in paradise conditions, here on earth. Once again, my condolences to the family and friends.

Three shots were fired
Taps was played
Your badge retired
And last call was made
Many tears were shed
For you that day
For the life you led
And the price you paid
You'll live on in our hearts
But it isn't the same
We're left with the scar
With evil to blame
Death is never easy
For those left behind
You were taken too early
It wasn't your time
You died with honor
Doing what you love
Now at home with our Lord
You're doing the same from above
You will forever live on
This is not goodbye
Even though you are gone
Heroes never die

Rest in Peace Sargeant Carter. We have the watch.

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."

So saddened to hear the news.

May you rest in peace after having served those around you. My thoughts are with you, your family, fellow officers and friends.

The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
ones character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.

Sergeant Carter, you had a diverse career and there is little doubt in my mind, each department you left was sorry to see you go, as was the United States Air Force. I thank you for your service to the citizens of Alabama as well as the people of the USA.

I know if they keep you in their hearts and minds, those who know and love you best will never truly be without you.

I pray for all those feeling the pain of your loss. I also pray your murderer faces true justice, if not in this world, then in the next.

God Bless you, Brother and may your eternal rest be ever peaceful.
