Oh My. Dallas.
We all saw the Dallas shootings coming. It was almost inevitable.
Guns and Dallas, well...
The news media isn't helping
by broadcasting half-truths, guesses, bits of information without any substance.
We aren't helping either, by rushing to knee-jerk reactions and comments. (Mea Culpa)
Black people live lives of constant danger, they are on edge.
Police live lives of constant danger, they are on edge.
Both sides are armed.
I am not black.
I am not a policeman.
I am not armed.
I cannot even speak the language of either.
I can speak for love, for understanding, for empathy, for peace.
That is my language.
That is my responsibility.
