Atlanta's SPO Gail Thomas to be Laid to Rest: May She Rest In Peace


Last week, we gave you heads up on how this respectful Atlanta Police Officer died at the young age of only 46 years old.  Senior Officer, Gail Thomas lost her life to a drunk driver, something that could have been prevented and stopped through state legislatures, across this nation.   We believe those whom get behind the wheel of the car while intoxicated should face the death penalty or at least get a life sentence, because manslaughter is not enough.   This late police officer, Gail Thomas leaves behind a 22 year-old daughter, Jasmine who is the same age as her mother killer.

This young lady is left without a mother.  Those of us whom are yet alive without are mother present in our lives can understand how this transition is going to feel, very lonely, at first.   However, we are very sure Police Officer daughter, Jasmine will continue to be strong and continue to do what her mother encouraged her to do and that is to complete her degree at the University she attends.   She needs our prayers, because she is her mother's only child and for this to have suddenly occur would make anyone remain in distress for a very long time.   Her mother was very strong as a single mother to become a police officer and care for her only child.   Not a lot of black mothers would choose such a career, but it takes a lot of courage.


This is why we try to encourage you black women to learn how to love other and do not take another pain of a black woman, lightly, because many times, they are much worse off than you.   You may think you will not have to endure such pain, but none of us can escape emotional trauma, for it is a part of life.  However, we must remain in God and not cease His Kingdom.  Many times, He can protect us from the evil man or woman, if we pray for his angels to surround us and take charge over our lives.   


May Atlanta SPO Gail Thomas rest in peace and may God keep her mother and daughter strong in Him..
