I didn’t sleep well last night. Before I laid my head down, I knew what was happening in Dallas. I didn’t think it could be that bad. I didn’t think anyone would shoot down among a crowd of people hoping to “kill white people” hitting 12 officers and 2 civilians. No. No. No. I felt helpless yesterday, today is worse.
I hope the Hughes brothers remain safe and they get the apology that I feel they should get. I hope that other cities look at what happened and know this could happen anywhere. I hope that people across America understand that violence is not a solution. I hope that people this November vote to put people in office who can help repair that wounds that America is suffering through.
Here is my plan of action. I am going to be kinder. I am going to be polite. I am going to be patient. I am going let someone in on the onramp to the highway. I know that these actions don’t change the world, but if I can make a change in “my world” I can dream that it will spread.
