Jesus, Coop! You scared me at first. . .this is beautifully written. Consider me standing watch. it is what I have done in my past life, it is what I do now, and I will stand watch for all eternity. I will keep the wolves from your body while you rest your soul. And if I should fall, know that I fell protecting those I love and treasure the most. And know that another like me will rise to the occasion and take my place, until they, too, fall protecting the innocent and the weary.
