— Bishop E.W. Jackson, president and founder of Stand America, will host a prayer breakfast on Monday, January 19, at the Marriott in Chesapeake, Virginia. Bishop Jackson founded the Chesapeake Martin Luther King Leadership Breakfast 15 years ago, and this year he asks Americans to include the police in their Martin Luther King, Jr. birthday observances. From his press release:
“We have honored law enforcement since 9/11. We realized that police get attacked when anything seems to go wrong, but seldom appreciated for the daily dangerous job they do to keep us safe. When a law enforcement officer reports for duty, it could be his last shift. After Ferguson and Staten Island, some protesters actually called for the murder of police. Then two police officers were assassinated. Because of these unfortunate developments, we are taking special steps this year to encourage men and women in blue.”
Bishop Jackson reminds people that the police maintain peace and safety in our communities.
