Good Cops Are on the Beat

In time of dicey trouble, it’s reassuring to know that there are good cops on the beat.  They wear no special uniforms.  In a sense, they are undercover cops, but carry in their deportment commitment, courage, and a certain flavor of righteousness.  They do not inhabit special buildings, but span out to our own neighborhoods and workplaces.  Sometimes for want of a better description they are called angels.  Whether they are or not, I do not know.  I only know them by their works and words.  They begin right away, so to speak, to put on new coats of paint.  They make a real difference in our world, and like a new year’s day, help make for fresh starts.  Unfortunately there must always be caution—some angels answer to an evil authority. But in these cases, time (usually a short time) reveals their true master as they work counter to our long-term best interests.
