Thoughts about Dallas

candle-1342227_640

  • We have to stop killing each other.
  • We have to stop believing that killing each other solves anything.
  • We have to realize that anger unfocused only makes things worse.
  • Are things any better because these husbands, fathers and war veterans are now dead?
  • If you find these deaths cause to celebrate, what does that say about you?
  • How does protesting an unjust death by committing an unjust murder make things right?
  • Is this some kind of competition, where the only goal is the even the score?
  • Whose wounds are now healed because of this?
  • When did we stop valuing all lives?
  • How did we get to this place?
  • How do we get out of this place?

Please pray for the police officers and their families and everyone impacted by this terrible event. And that we can find a way to heal without further violence.

    1. Hey Ramona,
      I don’t think November will particularly solve anything. Unfortunately. But I am happy to say that I haven’t seen any headlines in the last few days that inform me that another police officer has been killed. Perhaps instead of relying on our so called political leaders, we as citizens have to work harder to find our humanity and act accordingly.
