On a day of great heartbreak, local citizens line up to offer their condolences to the men and women who walk the thin blue line.
This is the heart of America.
This is the reason we will survive.
We watched in disbelief late last night as police were gunned down on the streets of Dallas, Texas. And woke up today to discover it wasn’t just a nightmare but our actual reality.
During an otherwise peaceful protest, one that was ironically protesting the police themselves, shots rang out and punctured the illusion that we can gather and rally for any reason and remain safe. So today we grieve. We grieve the America we have long been missing.
These folks, of all colors and creeds, have proven that she’s still there. She’s still here.
And long may she live.
