"will come together Wednesday", 10-07.
We have met the enemy and it is us. This sad story is symptomatic of a failing
society and the cheapness of life. There is also an element of crucifixion and
the goodness of redemption. The actions of the wife parallel the actions of
Veronica and the veil. The actions of the shooter are very much tied in with
the agony of immigration reform, "the good, the bad, and the ugly". The
actions of the 17 year old companion tell a tale of the loss of dignity for
women. When they bury Officer Wride, they bury a bit of us all.
Deputy Sherwood, we pray for your complete recovery! Nanette Wride, you are
amazing! Thanks for your selfless example. You and your good husband and
family will be together again, someday. Two words: temple covenants.
I know a lot of officers from across the country and yet people still don't
have a clue what these people do for us and god forbid something happens to
them. We not only lose a good man trying to make things safer but the families
are left without a father figure for their kids. This doesn't have to
happen and just man up and do the right thing then everyone can go home.
What is the date of the service?
Condolences to the family of Sgt. Cory Wride and to the people of Utah for he
loss of one of your own.
