Shop Spotlight - The Homespun Raven
Over the weekend two officers in our small town were walking a neighborhood at night. It's a less than desirable part of town but they walk it every night in hopes that police presences will make a difference in the drugs and violence and that the people living there will know they care and that they are on their side doing the best they can to keep them safe.
The two officers were ambushed and shot. Someone stepped out of the bushes with the intent of killing these men who were just doing their job. Who were there to bring safety and peace to the neighborhood. My heart is broken. It was less than a year ago that a little girl sleeping in her bed at night was shot in a drive-by shooting there. That a man layed on his children trying to protect them from the bullets coming through the walls. I do not understand. How does this keep happening? WHY does this happen. Again all I can say is that my heart is broken.
Thankfully the men were wearing bulletproof vests and survived but not uninjured both mentally and physically. As the town searches for ways to cope and the families of these young men try to return to something that resembles normal again I wanted to find something to give to them. To show them they are appreciated and that despite that shooter there are people in that neighborhood who are grateful for their presences and sacrifices.
