I was traveling all day yesterday and did not learn of the news in Dallas until this morning. Upon waking, it was the first thing that greeted me as I reached for my morning coffee.
There are 5 police officers who were not able to reach for their morning coffee today. Who will not ever reach for their’s again.
I am sad for my city. I am sad that what was supposed to be a peaceful protest turned so violent. I cannot fathom what the families of the fallen are going through at this time. Or what makes someone’s heart so dark they feel the need to turn to such drastic measures.
I have been trying to find words all day to express the emotions going through me. I have sent silent prayers to the families and friends and loved ones of the fallen. I have sent prayers to the people of my city. And I have sent prayers of healing for a world that sees far too much violence.
If you are reading this I ask you to please take a moment of silence to honor the fallen. To say a prayer of peace for this world we live in.
I am still processing…but I still believe mankind is good at heart. I will continue to live in Love rather than Fear. I believe that is the way to Peace…
