Deputy tribute inspiring

  • Follow Letters

I reside outside of your area, but have family and friends within. I have been awed by the love and support provided for slain Deputy James D. Paugh.

I watched the entire YouTube video of the procession of cars and have no words to express how impressed I was. I saw images of uniforms lining the area in front of the First Baptist Church of Augusta’s rotunda. That is one huge family full of love.

We don’t do enough to protect those who protect us. We know that in giving his life, someone else has been saved by Deputy Paugh. Hopefully a lot more good will come out as the days and weeks go by. Let’s fight to protect those who stand between us and the evil in our areas.

Also, great editorial cartoon! Such a sweet tribute!
