Prayers for Dallas PD
The tragic events in Dallas Texas touch all of us in this country and remind us how dangerous police work is.
If you would like to help the families of the fallen the Dallas Police have provided links to a couple of sites set up for that purpose.
You may find the links and leave condolences and words of support of their Facebook page or directly access those links below.
These five officers gave their lives defending the the First Amendment right to free speech. The right to assemble and protest peacefully is guaranteed by the Constitution. In some countries, authorities would have arrested peachful protesters, put them under surveillance or worse.
Yet these events force us to ask ourselves whether its time to change the tone of the national political campaigns that thrive on generating anger and intolerance because they may contribute to those who may feel violence is an acceptable answer to achieve their agendas. Disagreement does not require disrespect. Honor these officers by demonstrating respect for those whose views you may disagree with.
