Being thirty-one years old, I have had more than a few experiences that have tailored me to become a
Criminal Justice Major at this university. I believe I have been lead to this highly controversial path, as a
shining light in the darkness. I like thinking back on the roots of the original title that was given to police
officers, that is Peace Officers.
During my mid-teens my family went through a lot of changes. My parents had separated and divorced,
resulting in my mother leaving and not communicating to our family for months.My father had met a
new woman and they both got serious pretty quickly. This quick transition eventually leads to my family
moving in with my father’s girlfriend.
During the move in, I learned very quickly that Susan, my father’s girlfriend, was very different in …show more content…
Eventually we came to the Christmas Season. Respecting Susan’s beliefs, I planned on celebrating
Christ’s birth in my personal room.Eventually it was discovered and I was instructed to take down my
decorations. As a teenager I did not take this very well and an argument ensued.
The sheriff’s office was called to deal with me. I believe the deputy who responded was God’s warrior
answering the call. Not only was I hurting that my father did not stop his girlfriend from kicking me out
of the house, but now I had to deal with being homeless. The Deputy cleared out the front seat and
invited me to sit up front with him.
During our conversation we spoke about God and Jesus and how we don’t know His plan for us. He
prayed with me and encouraged me to continue my growth and walk with Christ. The deputy single-
handedly laid God’s plan in front of me. He shared the Lord’s light with me when I felt that the world
was closing in on me and that there was no hope. This single event is what drives me to pursue my
degree and to continue my walk with

A survey was conducted which consist of ten questions. Each question of this survey deals with policing in America, weather it is the area in which you encountered officers to how your encounter was with them. 54 individuals of different races and ages took this survey. The survey was structured in a way to see if there is a connection between the old policing and the new age policing. In this survey, the participants must answer all the questions to the best of their ability. The participants included college student and non- college that ranged from the ages 17 and above. The participants were family, friends, and college students. This population of individuals was targeted so that the surveys’ outcome would have opinions from all
Once upon a time, 2 summers ago, my brother, Jesus , and I were asking to my Mom and Dad to let us play baseball in the backyard. After 2 days of (not) literal crying, our parents let us play. Many days later Jesus and I thought “ How about we play a Home Run Derby over our garage.” We both agreed to do it. Jesus pitched one, foul ball, he pitches a second one, home run, Jesus pitches one last pitch and, CRASH! I had broke my neighbor’s window. Jesus ran inside. I hid in the garage until my parents asked Jesus where I was. My parents still had not found out about the window, they were looking for me because I had to do chores. I felt so lucky and felt even luckier when my neighbor wasn’t home.
Every time a police officers puts on his/her uniform his/her life becomes dangerous. They put their lives in harm’s way to protect the citizens of their town/city. Unfortunately, not every Officer lives to tell their story. Some of them die heroic deaths while others do not. These officers are a symbol of hope for some people, and a symbol of control and tyranny to others. Some honor their code, while others abuse their power, entirely. We all owe a great debt to those who die in the line of duty. In this paper I will be telling you about Chief of police, Steven Eric DiSario. Steven DiSario, was born in Salem, Ohio on February 2, 1979 and died Friday, May 12, 2017. The 38 year old was the Chief of Police in Kirkersville. Eric was married and had a
Once I finished my thought, I sat on the couch and waited for I response. What I received was a blank stare and a look of disbelief. He stated that he would lose me to God and he did not know how to deal with what I just said to him. He collected himself and stated that he would support me in this journey and would try not to pass judgment on what was taking place. He stated that he understood that I had to do the will of God and he could not stand in the way of my calling. He also stated that he was not sure how this journey would look or how he could help me study to become a better teacher and minster. I let him know that his support is all I need at the moment and there would be days I may need his should to lean and cry on.
On Christmas Eve my parents and I go to church to attend the Candle Light Vigil. At the end of the service a flame is passed around till everyone’s candle is lit and we all sing “Silent Night”. It is a beautiful sight to see the warm glow from the candle light on peoples’ faces, while singing such a compelling and peaceful song. I love attending this service every year, for me it is a great reminder of the true meaning
In the middle of April, I decided to go to the police station. The drive there from my house was roughly about ten minutes. Once I arrived to the police station, I had to call the dispatcher and request a ride along. The lady on the other line told me to wait for a police officer – she will notify them that I’m there waiting. I waited about thirty to forty minutes for someone to peak out the door and ask me, “have you been helped?” I replied saying, “yes, I’m waiting for a ride along.” He told me that no one is available right now to give me a ride along. He then proceeded to tell me to come back after six o’clock. I work at a restaurant, so I decided to eat there, chat with my co-workers, and before I knew it, it was already ten after six.
I kept in touch with my father in Boston because at the time he was willing to get me out of that situation. That summer my dad drove down to Georgia to get me; however, the damage was already done. My father didn’t know what my mother’s boyfriend had done to me. He found me with holes in my clothes, no winter jacket, no glasses, and damaged teeth.
It all started in June of 2015. God had been bugging me with something for a long time. I had suddenly felt called to Woodcrest to have with their ministry. Flashback to March of 2015. I had found myself going to a conference at Woodcrest. When at the conference I began to realize that Woodcrest was full of people with faith, despite what I had thought. I thought the preacher was high and mighty but at the conference he was sitting among the people learning with us. I also was greeted with a smile by everyone. These people I had never seen before where so nice. Having trust with Woodcrest I showed up with my grandma, since my parents were out of town. I went in and the message was deep, what I didn’t know what God was going to do in the next
It was the hardest for me, that was my mother and father. My father got custody of my brother and I, shortly after he remarried. It was incredibly hard for me growing up in a step-parent household. When I was in first grade I would come home crying everyday wanting my mother. I remember asking my father where is my mother and why doesn’t she want to see me? So confused, my father told me that my mother made a choice to not see me. That she could see me when ever she wanted to be choose not too. That caused me I have this resentment of my mother. In addition to the lost of my mother who I thought was suppose to love me and be there for me no matter what left me I had a my step mother often physically and verbal abused me throughout my childhood. She would call me names and ugly. Said I wasn’t smart and that I was a selfish manipulated little girls just like your mother. She called me a dyke and threaten to put me in foster care. My father turned a blind eye to the situation and told me to be grateful you have a bed to sleep
Immediately after I touched him, I felt the change. I was healed! But then soon after I had touched Jesus, I heard him asking for the one who touched him. I heard the disbelief coming from his followers. Why would he be looking for someone who touched him in a crowd of people following him just trying to get a glimpse of Jesus? I was scared, but I knew what had happened for I was healed. I knew I was the one he was looking for. So I fell before Jesus and told him everything, I told him the truth. As I walked back I remembered everything Jesus told me. He told me that I should go in peace, and free of disease, for my faith in him had healed me. I will never forget this day, the day where I found Jesus
During my middle school years, my father had an emotional affair with a coworker. Not only was I young, but I was at a point in my life where I was “trying to find myself,” as adults call this time. I was the only one who knew what the situation was. The first time I found out, I remember feeling as though this was surreal. The moment felt like a scene from a movie. “This really can’t be happening,” I joked around, but deep down I knew this was real. I remember feeling alone. I was behooved to tell my mother immediately, but I couldn’t bring myself to do so. I knew I wouldn’t be able to look at her in the eyes and tell her what was going on. Not only did I not want to see my mom react to something so devastating, but I also didn't want to get in trouble for looking through my father’s phone messages.
