What is a good Shepherd?
A Good Shepherd is one that would willingly place themselves in danger to assist another, more specifically in the case of a lethal interaction. 

Captured perfectly in the book of John: “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” - John 15:13

Protecting our families, our friends, our neighbors –our flock.
