A new trend is showing up on thousands of homes across our country consisting of a thin blue line painted on the curb — and it’s sending a strong message. Here’s what this new fad means, and what you can do about it.
In light of the horrifying recent events surrounding police officers in our country, one San Antonio man’s Facebook post has been shared over 88,000 times, and it’s no wonder it’s gone viral.
A ‘Thin Blue Line’ is a universal symbol to law enforcement. The line represents the separation of law abiding citizens from anarchy and criminals. All that divides the two is the thin line: our law enforcement.
To show his unwavering support for the hardworking and selfless cops in our nation, Anthony Welichko posted a photo on Facebook of a spray-painted “thin blue line” on his curb.
“To all law enforcement who see this line, know that the residents of this home appreciate your service and dedication to keeping the peace.
Know that when you enter the neighborhood and see these lines that you are not alone or without “back-up”.
We do not need the media to make our voices of support for our police and emergency services heard (though it would be nice).
Lastly, if you are in my neighborhood and mean to harm a member of law enforcement, know that decision may be hazardous to your health as someone has that officers back!
A little blue line along the curb is a show of solidarity that our citizens have with police. Today, this gesture of honor and support is showing up on thousands of homes across our country — and it’s a beautiful sight to behold.
In the wake of the horrific murders of five Dallas police officers and three Baton Rouge officers, this small “thin blue line” gesture sends a powerful message.
I’m so grateful for our selfless American officers who have devoted their lives to protect and serve our communities. I don’t know about you, but I plan on heading out to my home’s curb this evening with some tape and a can of blue spray paint!
“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” John 15:3
