What makes the sacrifice of California Highway Patrol Officer Kenyon Youngstrom more important to all of us is how seemingly random it was. Imagine having to walk up to a car and being unexpectedly shot to death. It's what these brave men and women do on a daily basis. They are the THIN BLUE LINE. The world is sometimes a violent place, and we should be thankful for the valor of men like Kenyon Youngstrom. They truly protect and serve, and we are all saddened by this tragedy.

"Officer Youngstrom was known by all around him for his love of God"

God, as we are taught by the church, works in strange ways. Let us assume that both of these deaths are part of God's plan.

Officer Youngstrom continued his heroism even after his death by pre-arranging the donation of his organs.

My deepest condolences to his wife, children, extended family, and the law enforcement community.
