Diane was outside the courthouse when it happened. She was running late from lunch. If she were on time she says she would have been caught in the cross fire. At her desk, a prayer hangs on her bulletin board as a reminder that God is watching over her.
"Therefore will I trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone."
It was an emotional day for Judge Cynthia Kent as well. She was holding court when the shooting errupted.
"After you experience this kind of trauma you can't help but think about it, think and pray for Deputy Dollison, what he and his family has to go through. You are thinking about those who stood in the line of fire,' says Judge Kent.
Everyone at the courthouse Monday was thinking of the brave men who put their lives on the line to protect them. This tribute on the wall is just one way for them to say thanks.
