Brittany Beard Hilton shared the photo recently, although she took it on Thanksgiving. The photo is of Brittany sitting next to her husband, Steven, who is also a police officer.
"All you may see in this photo is two smiling police officers. But there is more. We are husband and wife, parents to four beautiful girls, we are a son and a daughter, a Brother and sister, a grandson and granddaughter, a Niece and nephew. (Steven is also an army veteran). We are friends to many. Before you say hateful things and put all officers in a category…remember we are all individuals attached to a delicate thin blue line. We are attacked daily and getting killed just for putting on a badge. You voice your opinion, and rally against law enforcement over tickets!! We are risking our lives."
"This photograph was taken on Thanksgiving day. My husband and I both decided to work, giving up time with our family so the community would be safe.
Think before you speak. Your words could promote deadly actions.
WE BLEED BLUE! All lives matter"
Brittany's post serves to remind us that the law enforcement community is full of brave, heroic, and compassionate people. Share this story and help spread the GOOD stories about police officers.
