Never Forget

By Lawrence Kim


Never Forget

Who You are

Or What you Stand for.


Never Forget

The struggle that made you

Who You are.

Never Forget

There is always someone

Who needs your help.

Always Remember

The Kindness

That makes you Human.




Never Forget

The Virtues

That make you Good.

Never Forget,

Darkness will try

To Deceive You.

Always remember,

Darkness fades in Light.




Never Forget

The Reason

You were Born.

Always Remember

There is a Reason.

LawerenceKim,


I read this post and it tells it like it truly and realistically is; my father and mother raised me to never forget my roots, my upbringing, and especially that my life has direct purpose from God and he allowed my birth for his direct service to our world. At fourteen years old, my father being a minister, taught me ethical balance, and what my reason in life was all about, and it created inside of me a yearning to grow up doing my part to help persons in our society to live a life whereas they could walk our nations streets and feel safe and secure that nobody could get by preying upon them and causing them to become victims. I made friends with our Chief of Police, our County Sheriff, and the local assigned state trooper in Lincoln County, Arkansas. As my friendship grew, so did my deep passion to set and fulfill my goal of growing up to become a police officer. My Dad allowed me to ride as a citizen on patrol (COP) with each of my friends and it became my weekend passion, and all summer place to be, with the Police authority of our community. I lifted weights with them, listened to Jerry Lee Lewis, Boots Randolf, Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, among other country and western stars and helped them break up fights, and accompanied them at ball games, etc. It became ingrained into my blood early on in life. I say all of this to comment on what each taught me that is included in your post...treat everyone the way you'd desire to be treated. You don't demand respect, you earn it; the person you turn out to be in life is determined by who you are to others; There concern in me as a teenage lad, trying to meet the needs of people and help enforce what is right over wrong in life determines each outcome in the end. If you take shortcuts and treat people with a bully attitude, then you lose the respect of the public and once you lose respect, all they respect is the fact that you have authority to end their freedom and wearing the badge is a symbol of fear instead of hope, and comfort...the state trooper and Sheriff both, taught me to earn respect is the meaning of being respected and treated with dignity on or off the job, in or out of a uniform. I am so thankful that God gave me the purpose of becoming one of Gods chosen servants, willed to the profession of doing his will and ensuring that everyone was treated equal, fair and impartial according to the letter of the law. What you do for one, you must do equally for all, or else you are being deliberately indifferent and are then unfortunately liable. Gob bless you my friend, and thanks for sharing  what set off a spark of memory of days gone by, but days that are still very important to me today and forever because of someone caring enough to teach me the right things and choices for my life and the life of all that depend upon me and each of you as Gods Chosen Servants. Michael Powell.
