The image of a police officer and protester in Nashville praying together has inspired many who are searching for hope during these troubling times.
During a peaceful protest on Saturday in Tennessee, Officer Garren Hoskins saw a demonstrator sharing his Christian faith with the crowd.
“My duty at that time was to hold the line and create a barrier around the central precinct as the peaceful protest continued,” Hoskins said. “There was an individual standing in front of me. He was preaching, holding a sign and he had his mask on.”
“As he was talking, he was quoting Bible verses. I’m personally a Christian and what he was saying is the same things I was raised on and what I believe,” the officer added.
