I Can Not Thank God Enough

My Brother is a detective with the sheriffs office and yesterday he was investigating a murder. While trying to apprehend the slime ball er suspect he shot at my brother and other detectives with an AK-47. My brother's car was shot six times...it looks surreal to see his car like that. While I am so very thankful to God my brother is okay...and innocent bystander was killed, a father and a husband. I pray for their family and I also pray for this 25 year old man who did this awful thing...I don't understand how you raise a child like this or how anyone believes being a member of a gang could be worthwhile ...there is so much I don't understand.

But, I believe it is a miracle that my brother is alive...and I am so grateful.
Here is the story!

I am so happy for you that your brother is safe and sound. It is very scary out there on the streets these days. I too will say a prayer for those who were killed. It is hard to fathom the lives these young men lead that compells them, but I also know that if your family life if practically non-existant then one would be compelled to join a group regardless of their practices. The gang activity continues to grow here in our part of the world and really touches so many, doesn't it. Thanks for the post!

I'm so thankful to God that your brother was kept safe as well as the others. It's awful that an innocent man lost his life because some other inhumane person didn't care about life. I will pray for his family. I know they've got to be devastated!
