Join us this week on Christian Devotions SPEAK UP! when Scott McCausey interviews speaker and author RaShad Bristo.

RaShad's childhood dream was to become a police officer. He decided to pursue that dream after graduating from Grambling State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice. Hired and deputized by DeSoto Parish Sheriff's Office, RaShad was sent to the police academy. 

Opposition and discrimination met RaShad head-on as having one arm seemed to become a crime in itself. After going through weeks of vigorous training, he was denied certification to become an officer. Emotionally wounded and with a dream almost shattered, he recalled the words his grandfather told him as a boy: "Son, your disability does not define you, your determination does." 

After several years, RaShad became the only person in the State of Louisiana and the first person in the country with one arm to successfully graduate from a police academy and work in law enforcement as a deputy sheriff, D.A.R.E. officer, juvenile probation officer, and correctional officer.

You will be encouraged as RaShad Bristo recounts his story and tells us we all have choices to be bitter or better. Discover more about him at his web site: http://www.rashadbristo.net/.
