No One Is Lost Forever

Officer and Reformed Man

I saw this incredible story by Melissa Chan of the Daily News of a Police Officer (JD Boyd) and a former convict that were able to meet again after he served his time. Read the story here.

In short summary, the Officer and this man were in a life-threatening altercation. The man almost stabbed Officer Boyd in the head with a knife, while the officer almost shot him before he was able to subdue him.

Almost a year later, they ran into each other on the street. The man was able to share his story with Officer Boyd and explained that he now had a full-time job and a growing family. He was a changed man. They were able to embrace each other as friends.

I love this quote by Officer Boyd:

“No one is ever lost forever and as long as you continue to work to be a better version of yourself than you were yesterday things will work out eventually.”

Be a better version of yourself today than you were yesterday. Click To Tweet

It’s an incredible story of the power of forgiveness and the truth that it’s never too late to change the course of your life. Simply strive to be a little bit better today than you were yesterday.
