Texas Governor Greg Abbott posted on Facebook Wednesday asking for a minute of Red and Blue flashing lights throughout the state at 11:00AM on Friday September 5th. The minute is in honor of Deputy Sheriff Darren Goforth and other law enforcement officers throughout Texas.
This is a great move (politically motivated or not) to show support for law enforcement from an authoritative figure in the state government. It would be great if more states followed Governor Abbott’s move and showed support for the men and women in blue.

CALL TO ACTION: As we mourn Harris County Deputy Sheriff Darren Goforth, I ask all Texas officers to turn their lights on for one minute at the time his funeral service begins. SHARE to spread the word!
