What happened in Dallas last night is disappointing, disheartening and disgraceful. As were the recent shootings in Minnesota and Louisiana. Let’s all take a deep breath and decide how we want to live our lives and what kind of nation we want to live in. Do we want to live in peace and respect every life or not? Do we want to respect the rule of law and respect those who risk their lives everyday to protect us or not? Now is the time for all of us to come together and respect each other and resolve whatever differences we may have peacefully and respectful of the rule of law. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of those lives lost in the past few days in these tragic events and with the Dallas Police Department and police officers everywhere.
