Let Love win

As a Canadian and as a citizen, I am shocked by this senseless act of violence of three R.C.M.P. officers killed and the two R.C.M.P. officers ,  Const. Darlene Goguen and  Const.Eric Dubois,who were wounded. In a world filled with so much hate, we need to do our individual and collective part to make this a more caring world.

I just finished watching the memorial service on the C.B.C. The memories shared touched me, often having me cry with those who were crying.  I wanted so much to be able to say something comforting in their presence. I will speak here my thoughts I would share if I was with them now.

I share with you in your sorrow. I pray for you in your time of sadness. I offer you this listening heart, who is struggling along with you to process this awful tragedy. 

The world is in mourning, a little sadder, a lot more terrified.

Yet, if we live our lives in fear then we allow the darkness to win. I know Const. Fabrice Georges Gevaudan, Const. David Joseph Ross and Const. Douglas James Larche would want us to live life not with fear, but rather an enduring resolve, that we will not let  hate win. Light will defeat the darkness. Love will conquer hate. And then we all will win.

We  remember and honour them by living as they would want us to live, one life giving to another life, together building  more loving communities and a kinder world.

I leave you with this thought.

“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief…and unspeakable love.”  Washington Irving

The peace and comfort of God be with us all.




About Dr. Kevin Osborne B.A., B.Th., M.A., M.Div., Psy.D. Ph.D. and Th.D. Candidate

I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. Two years ago I completed my Doctorate in Psychology (Psy.D.) through St. James the Elder University. On Sept. 26th 2020, I graduated with a Master of Divinity degree from Canadian Christian Theological Seminary. These journeys were started over 20 years ago. In 1997 I received a Bachelor of Theology degree from Canada Christian College & Graduate School. Between working and studying it took 13 years to finish it. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
