Tony Crawford was a police officer in the Dallas Police Department. He was shot by two teenagers & was left paralyzed from the waist down. Finally, the trials were completed, & the last assailant was found guilty & sent to prison.

But there was a really tender scene pictured in the newspaper that showed Tony Crawford in his wheel chair holding the hand of the young man who had shot him. And the news reported that Tony Crawford said to him, "I forgive you, & I hope you’ll keep in touch & let me know how you’re getting along down there."

Then he said, "It’s over, & it’s time for me to get on with my life, & I will do that until I hear Him say to me on that day, `Get up & walk.’"
