[Ed. – Hang in there, troops. Feast on these good-news stories. They’re out there; they just don’t get top billing in the MSM coverage. That’s why God gave us the Internet.]
Today, over 8.000 people showed up, based on the number of blue shirts we have given away,” Sherrod said. “I have never seen anything like this response, but then, we are Texans and we don’t stand for our cops being murdered.”
Marchers began gathering about 8:30 a.m. on Houston’s northwest side for the march that wouldn’t kick off until 10:00. The moment finally came and the crowd joined in prayer, the Pledge of Allegiance and the National anthem. They heard from some police officers and other organizers and radio personalities and then it began.
The crowd’s voice was suddenly drowned out by the rumble of hundreds of motorcycles whose riders had come to join in the march. They led off the parade and were followed by another long train of jeeps, trucks and other SUV’s carrying flags and “Thin Blue Line” flags, banners and signs.
Then came the sea of blue shirts that said “Police Lives Matter” on the front and “United We Stand – Goforth with No Hate” on the back. The blue army of 8,000 men, women, children, and dogs, began marching west along the tollway feeder for their march that would continue for four and one-half miles.
People of all races and colors, from all walks of life, came out to show their support. Most wore the blue shirts that were being given away, but many came wearing Captain America shirts.
