Support Blue Light campaign

We live in a nation that was founded on the principle of being free — free to worship and to also live in safety. That same God that our Founding Fathers and Mothers came here to worship is also the one who instituted that we, as citizens of this nation should be a people of law and order, with certain defined, set guidelines to live by that ensure and provide for our safety.

For that reason, men and women are appointed and elected to carry out those necessary guidelines. We know and recognize those people as our national, state, and local law enforcement agencies which have been under much condemnation lately.

It is for that reason that we, as citizens who value and honor their service to our communities, ask others like ourselves to actively show their support for them by joining us in Project Blue Light. To participate means to simply display a blue light somewhere on your property, whether it be a porch light, or just a string of blue lights. By doing this we are showing that we appreciate and honor our law enforcement personnel and we honor the one who instituted them for our freedom and safety.
